I've added a page on celebrating early Summer, a time when I wait hungrily to be given those iconic Summer foods that aren't yet ripe in the garden. I dream about the first ripe tomato and how it will taste on my tongue. I harvest herbs and spend so much time in the garden that my nails and feet are always dirty.
We also celebrate the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year (June 21st). This year we watched the Solstice sunrise and sunset from the observation towers at Blue Mounds State Park, and remembered how important the Sun is in our lives.
I hope everyone is enjoying the blessings of Summer!
