Tuesday on the Homestead

There is a moment when our cultivation feels positive – a flush of growth – flowers, beans, herbs, and nightshades: tomatoes, tomatillos, husk cherries, wonderberries, peppers, eggplants (no potatoes this year, can you believe it? I love growing potatoes but couldn’t do it this year), grapes, blackberries, and apples. Despite the weather (so dry in the Spring this year, then so hot and heavy and humid with occasional showers – it’s terrible), and despite the chickens (this year they have been incredibly destructive), there have been beautiful moments. We had a couple of lovelies come up and pick blackberries and do some woodland foraging – mushrooms abound, winterberry, sweet fern – an amazing little bounty.

May you find amazing bountiful moments to focus on.
