I know we are still smack dab in the middle of summer but since I am out watering every day and plodding away in the garden and watching my food grow; I can already see and feel fall coming in the mornings and evenings. Which I am super excited about because Autumn is my favorite month but for the first time I am thinking, “Summer, don’t go too fast…..I want more food hahahaha.”
Here in the pacific northwest by the time the summer solstice hits we have sun from like 4:15am to 10-10:15pm. Now just over a month past the solstice the sun is behind the last houses by 9pm and it is just starting to peak over the horizon when I get a quick morning water in at 5:40am to stave off the 98 degree weather. A quick hit of the hose in the AM means I don’t come home to wilted plants at 5pm. I do the major watering after i get home from work.
Today is a medium busy day for me, I am working until mid-afternoon then meeting my friend for a coffee and a chat
then heading home to get in a quick 1.5 mile run
then making some delicious stuffed zucchini.
We opened our first batch of homemade refrigerator pickles and they are DELICIOUS!!!! I wanted to eat the entire pint jar in one sitting……and no I have not been a major pickle lover my whole life.
Got tomorrows HW done today for the win! Staying ahead is game changing.
