Today I feel RICH! a.k.a. the first day of summer


Today was the beginning of summer, truly. It's the day that we began eating primarily from our garden. "Summer" came unusally early for us this year. Some years we spend Memorial Day weekend planting our garden. Not this year--we had things planted by mid-May.


So our supper included asparagus, strawberries, spinach and a dessert I call royal crisp. The crisp features both blueberries (last year's, from the freezer) and rhubarb with an oatmeal topping. Yummmm...



The bounty of our garden makes me feel rich. Eating fresh food from the land is a privilege I often take for granted.

But it comes at a cost, as my dirt-stained blue jean knees show. The kids and I spent the morning partly in the vegetable garden and partly in the flower beds.

TANSTAAFL!
