Summer at it’s best

Ahhhhh Summer

The season that flees too fast, making us savor every moment of it. Last week we went “upta camp” as they say in these parts. It was a little piece of heaven on earth. Exploring in kayaks, swimming, and wandering around the woods completely unplugged – no cell phone, no computer, no screens; and camping lanterns for light when the sun went down. I was happily reintroduced to a part of myself that had gone missing for a while.

When we got home, I decided to try my hand at fermenting some vegetables: cucumbers, cabbage, carrots and kohlrabi. The jars are bubbling as I understand they should, and cucumbers are starting to smell just like pickles! Looking forward to biting into that first one, and feeling oh so grateful for all this season brings.
