Tastes of summer: Freshly grilled bratwurst with homemade relish, tomatoes straight off the vine, a peach so fresh and ripe that I eat it standing over the sink while the juice runs down my chin--yum!
So what if it's raining every day and wind is knocking debris all over the deck and grilling is out of the question--we'll take our picnic indoors.
what if cool, damp nights have slowed the growth of tomato plants and
increased the chance of blight--the first taste of a fresh garden tomato
offers hope of fresh garden goodness yet to come.
So what if we haven't seen the sun for two solid weeks--there's enough summer sunshine packed in one fresh peach to carry us through the damp gloomy days until the sun comes back.
(It is coming back, right? Right?)
