This Past Week in Pictures
ummer has arrived with a bang finally. The hot weather we were waiting for is here. It’s been a heifer sorting, artificial inseminating, berry picking, wood cutting, kraut making, chestnut blooming, pear swelling, tomato gorging, compost stacking, full moon, last bale of hay hauling week. No time to take a breath because winter is on the way. I feel it in weeds I pull – they don’t yield like they did a few weeks ago. I smell it on the air, the first leaves decaying, and the scent of elder flowers always means don’t tarry with those tasks, this is a fleeting time. Soon the mornings will be brisk and you’ll see your breath. Hurry Hurry!
