I can’t believe it’s already mid-August! Summers in Montana are always short but this one seems to have flown by. I hope you’re having a good growing season and are enjoying delicious meals outside during these warm summer evenings.
I wanted to share a short video I made giving you a tour of my greenhouse in July.
I meant to get this out sooner but if there is one thing I know about the growing season, it’s that your best laid plans are consistently derailed. Weeding, watering, harvesting and preservation always take precedence during these few short months.
Last Saturday, my friend Mary and I spent about 9 hours harvesting, pitting and dehydrating sour cherries, and that was just from one tree! This morning, I made zucchini muffins and bread, am now deliberating about how I want to preserve beets, and wonder why I let so much volunteer kale take over my kitchen garden! Harvesting gooseberries and currants is on the list for this weekend. Despite the frenzy of this time of year and the tiredness of my body, I continue to be so grateful for the bounty.
So check out my video below and let me know if you have any questions by placing them in the comments below!
