Amid all this, there have been picnics in the yard, with special guests attending.
There are the waning fruits of the season, as the last of the late strawberries and raspberries grow red, and the first-ever peaches ripen on our tree.
There are the onions, pulled and dried, and the melons and squash readying on the vine.
And there is more to share with you... recipes, a fun tutorial, some pickling and experiments with fermenting, and more updates from out back. But for now, we are taking a long weekend away with family, in a last attempt to capture all that remains of summer.
I might be a bit slower to post these days as we find our pace, back in the swing of things!
**I'll be teaching a new session of Starting Solids:101 at Be By Baby in Chicago next Thursday, September 22nd. If you're local, please feel free to join us or spread the word!**
