Today was our long-awaited, first time ever picking blueberries. The blueberry farm was gorgeous, nestled in the hills. The blueberries were delectable, sun-warmed and juicy. It was also very hot and Sylvia got stung on the wrist by a bee. Camille felt light-headed and the bushes were a bit picked over. So we quit early and bought some comb honey to indulge in since we had only picked about $3 worth of blueberries (that actually made it into the buckets).
Later at home, we planted 15 golden raspberry canes, and we have been feasting on watermelon, peaches, and all manner of garden / CSA veggies. Summer abundance is upon us. So what did we have for dinner? Pizza, at a restaurant...with air-conditioning. We are not purists, but joy-seekers.
