Although summer does not officially begin in another four weeks, our brains have already made the switch to summer holidays. There are only two days of school left, it’s still bright outside at 8 o’clock in the evening, and we have begun churning ice cream at least twice a week – sure sign of summer.
We are headed to Seattle in a few days, then Montreal for my food styling and photography workshop, and a few more travel dates come after that. I get butterflies in my stomach when I travel and I am feeling them already. The good kind of anticipation.
Before it gets truly, scorchingly hot in Florida, we harvest the last bit of strawberries and these juicy cherry tomatoes from the community garden. The watermelon is also rapidly growing under the tree and its vines are taking over the basil and the eggplant in this little patch of garden we share with our neighbors. One of these days I’ll have a plentiful one.
So tell me, what will you be growing and harvesting this year?
Do make me jealous please.
