Welcoming the Summer Solstice

Welcoming the Summer Solstice

Summer solstice has always been one of my favorite times of the year. For one, it comes just before my birthday, so it is indeed a great reason to celebrate. But now, more importantly, it is the time of year when the garden and the forest really start producing a lot of edibles. For the past few weeks, we have been enjoying an array of lettuces, greens, and herbs in our salads and vegetable dishes. Although a few plants suffered in the late spring due to squash and flea beetles, they now seem to be growing steadily and happy in the soil.
