Today was my fist day of Summer Vacation, and I had hoped to get out for a ride; but, alas, the day was dark and wet and rainy. After puttering around indoors for much of the day, there was finally a break in the weather in the late afternoon and I made it outside at last.
Once in the garden I discovered a veritable Smorgishboard of snap peas, lettuces, broccoli, figs and raspberries! The very first crop of raspberries! The bushes were planted a couple years ago, but --as is common-- it took some time for the first crop to come in, and now it is here! I have been feasting on them all evening: I feel as if I have never taisted them before --berries fresh off the bush taist nothing like the ones in stores!
It was as though the garden were celebrating the end of the school term with me, and welcoming me home.
