Summer crops are almost here!

IMG_5935Today’s sky was unusual for around here. The thin clouds hung around all day, allowing for a very easy-on-the-eyes day and a perfect day to take pictures. And since it’s been a month since my last post, this is long overdue. I apologize for my absence. My unorganized self is fully to blame.

    Wonderful, Candi! I loved juicing a bunch of the carrot “seconds” yesterday, and part of dinner tonight is a second batch of green beans with smoked olive oil and garlic.
