Ready for Summer
Slowly, I'm packing away this years curriculum, looking at all we've accomplished and feeling so good. I'm moving Oliver's books to Molly's shelf where they will wait until August. Summer,I'm ready; for mornings that are just about the garden, friends and longer breakfasts. I'm ready for the hot afternoons spent in a cool pool with iced sun tea in hand, for balmy evenings with delta breezes. My garden is in and by late summer will be spilling over with eggplant, tomatoes, basil, peppers and cucumbers. Before I know it, plums will be dripping from the trees ready for jam. Pesto, slow roasted tomatoes, quick pickles and spiced compote...yes, I'm ready.
