Summer Full Strawberry Moon
Global warming, how fast can it happen? I don’t know, but my lilies have begun to open 2-3 weeks ahead of time. That’s a remarkable fact. The garden overall seems about 2 weeks ahead, at least that stuff that I got in the ground at temperature, but not date, appropriate times. I know, this is weather and that’s climate, still, one measure of the advance of global warming is earlier springs, which bring earlier plant blooming cycles. Of course, one year is not a trend.
Kate and I made 10 jars of scarlet currant jam, putting them in a hot water bath for 5 minutes to decrease the air pressure inside and get that satisfying ping when the atmosphere, barometric pressure 29.57 right now, presses the lid tight and seals.
We had a mixed green salad with onions, all from the garden, plus a wonderful spicy peanut jasmine brown rice dish right off the brown rice package. With the bees, the planting, the harvesting, the jelly making and the dinner this was a very local food type day.
