It's the best time of the year, food wise.
Blueberries and cherries are ripe and commercially available all around us for a reasonable price and for it I am grateful.
But the best of the best is the gardens are producing. We've had cucumbers and tomatoes from the inlaws for a few weeks now, zucchini as well, plus a few new potatoes. Yesterday we were blessed with more new potatoes, carrots, chard, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, and peas.
I spent a delightful few minutes shelling the peas. It is relaxing and it is easy to mark one's progress. But Mike offered to do it all so I let him while I attended to other matters of the kitchen.
The gardens and orchards are producing and for it I am grateful.
