Summer’s almost gone

This week we noticed the mornings have been cooler. It’s mid-August and the thought of autumn is in the back of all our minds.

But the leaves of witch hazel trees are still vibrant green.

And kids are still on summer vacation.

Sunflowers are still bright yellow.

The shade of the forest is still a welcome relief.

But the corn stalks are tall.

And catnip plants have flowered.

The world is bountiful.

A small turkey tail and reishi harvest will mean hot tea tonight.

And meal planning for the coming week.

Summer may be on its way out but after canning these peaches, we’ll have a little taste of summer in the winter!
