all summer long i'm slowly tending the garden. planting and weeding and watering.
and now it's harvest time. and like most craftspeople, i'm working flat out. although i made that decision not to do any craft fairs this year, i still have lots of orders to fill. and the garden, that has been my centre of attention all summer, now takes a back seat to my dyeing and spinning
but yesterday was keith's last day of holiday. so in the morning we set off early for blueberry picking. the rain held off.
and for a couple of hours , i forgot about work. and gathered in enough berries to keep us going for months. today, in between the skeins, i plan on jamming up the ground cherries and grating the zucchini to freeze. and that's the way it has to be.
