It’s the end of summer, and I’m a little sad. Little Ava just started kindergarten. I changed jobs recently, and I’ll be going back to work full time. So I feel like my future as a “punk rock homesteader” or “hip homemaker” doesn’t seem as relevant anymore. lol. We usually try to cram in a lot of summer fun during the last few weeks of summer. But for the past few weeks, it just hasn’t felt like summer at all. Temps in the 70s and relentless rain.
But truly, life has been good – even if the tomatoes haven’t been:) And while I haven’t been active on the blog, I still have done plenty of gardening and shopping locally this summer.
The garden produced quite a lot of zucchini at the beginning of the summer. Just look at the size of this one in contrast with a bunch of bananas!
Hey farmer farmer
Put away that DDT now
Give me spots on my apples
But leave me the birds and the bees
Ava was not interested in picking blueberries in the heat, so she stayed back at the farm stand with my mom and got busy shucking the corn we had purchased. At least she was working for her food!
I purchased this book for Ava…Poor kid has a mom with an agenda I’m afraid.
