a stunning butterfly stopped by this weekend to dine on our heirloom arikara sunflowers. a handful of flowers bloomed the first full day i was home from toronto. wasn't it sweet of them to wait for me?=)
i'm interested to see what else these beauties will attract! hummingbirds, perhaps?
despite the heatwaves and humidity, summer is my season. there are aspects of each season that i love (the coziness of winter, the crispness of fall, the smell of spring) but the abundance of summer wins my heart. this season feeds my belly and nourishes my soul like no other.=)
behold the bounty i brought home week four of muth family farm's organic csa:
blueberries from another local organic farm, parsley, red onions, basil, kale, collard, red chard, carrots, 12 ears of corn, cherry tomatoes, kohlrabi, purslane, zucchini, heirloom tomato, green tomatoes, cucumbers, and 2 types of eggplant
raw eggplant bacon was created with the smaller round one...
and edgar the eggplant with the knobby one.
i couldn't resist... summer unleashes my inner child!=)
what is your favorite season? (catch me outside on a really hot day and i may say spring!=)
