I'm really excited for the upcoming summer but it's been an awesome and productive spring. The last few months I've been working full-time, and also took a Master Composter training, went morel hunting near Leavenworth, started keeping bees, took an aerial arts class, helped in community gardens, went to concerts, visited friends in Portland, went to Breitenbush hot springs, and started dating a really sweet man. I ate out at some great restaurants in Seattle, like Delancy and Blind Pig Bistro. I also ate a lot of good home-cooked meals, like nettle pesto which was my kick off to spring, and more recently salmon with nectarines in one of our houses first outdoor meals of the year.
And I tried to get out into the backyard garden as much as possible. There is always so much more I want to or should do, but I suppose gardens always feel that way. The solstice harvest was kale, spinach, snap peas, and strawberries so I'm just going to be happy with that and not think about all the other things that could be growing. Luckily, there is still the whole summer to do work in the garden!
