The Bitter End

Be prepared...the end is definitely near.

A few summers ago, I officially declared it 'The Summer of the Mojito'.  I couldn't get enough of their limey deliciousness!  This summer, however, I forgot to grow mint; and any mojito-swiller worth their rum knows that the mint is the stuff.  Sadly, I was stuck drinking faux- hitos; which, believe me, are not nearly as refreshing.

Tempted by the veggies of another...

Gorgeous late summer vegetables from Midnight Sun Farm

We have a pretty good garden each year, and this year is no exception: five different types of tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers, dill, cilantro, lots of basil, thyme, rosemary, etc.  Pretty run-of-the-mill stuff.  Last year, our well-worn basics became so...well, extraordinarily well-worn.  With a tiny urban garden, it's hard to plant all the stuff we eat!  This year, we decided to liven things up a bit and join a CSA program through Midnight Sun Farm.  And esoterically speaking, we couldn't be happier!
