bring on the bounty

Here we are on the eve of June and quickly headed towards solstice. Tonight as I was frantically trying to finish up my spring cleaning and gauge what is left to toss, stash, and donate before it is no longer Spring, I realized that I am longing for time to savor life...to enjoy the passing minutes...to sit and relax with a bottle of wine on a long summer night and stare at the sunset. 

In my mind, summer has already begun. Mostly because the weather here in Seattle has been spectacular for the season, but also because a new (and unexpected) garden is in my life and I am getting a late start on sowing. Honestly I think I am just in too big of a hurry. All of a sudden my calendar switched to "days until harvest" mode and I felt in a rush to get it all done. Thankfully, I spent a few minutes on the Tilth website and there are plenty of crop windows still wide open. Not to mention the overwinter possibilities for garlic, kale, and collards (some of our favorites!). 

So, as I breathe a sigh of relief and remind myself to stock up on wine and go slowly in the garden, I wish you all a bountiful start to Rejuvenation June.

Looking for some fun music for May? I've decided to switch around my monthly playlists to be a soundtrack for the current month, rather than a soundtrack from the previous month. I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I am right now!
