“In winter I get up at night,
and dress by yellow candlelight,
In summer, quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day”
~ Robert Louis Stevenson, A Child’s Garden of Verses
It’s the first day of summer–the solstice arrives tonight. The days will, ever-so-slightly, grow shorter and dawn will start to arrive later. Eventually I’ll be able to sleep past four o’clock; for now I just relish the early morning time.

Yesterday we spent some delicious time in the garden weeding, tidying up, harvesting, and sowing some more seeds. I cut all the garlic scapes and I’m going to use them to make pesto.
Today, a road trip to see my mother-in-love, a stop at Rogers mill to stock up on bulk goods, and maybe a detour to find some strawberries.
