Google+ What I Made Today: Harvests . . .

Friday, July 11, 2008

Harvests . . .

The day started with a beautiful deer wandering through the yard. I managed some Saturday class prep and Sunday farmers' market prep early in the day before heading out to tend to utilitarian errands.

Once home again, the gardens called to me with pinching, tying, mulching and harvesting to tend to . . . 
 

Vibrant red and black currants that will likely end up in a mead or wine. 


A few of the smaller garlic bulbs were ready to be pulled.


I paused and made time to enjoy the blossoms of July.

And the day began its closing act with an honor to the verve of Deer that opened my day. This while relaxing on the deck sipping a nice California Asti embellished with a few currant berries and crunching potato chips. That's right--potato chips.

It looks like a fair amount of currents survived the assault of your flying friends.

Mmmmm, what a wonderful sounding day! I spent 2 hours on the patio this morning with the cats, enjoying a cup of tea and the morning sun...it's becoming a ritual with us.

Thank you all for your comments - I appreciate them all! The garden is exploding and I'm still managing summer-to-autumn plantings, so it's keeping me really busy!

But I'm not complaining!
