My favorite part of June

Strawberries and more strawberries. Blueberries and more Blueberries. I may turn into a berry. I am a fan.

Last night I made fresh lemonade from frozen lemon juice I put up last month and added cut up and mascerated strawberries to it, it was delicious.

Another thing I love about June is the promise of Summer. The trees are all green and the fruits are blooming. Our Mandarin tree is loaded this year and I can't wait until they are ripe at the end of the year. Our Fejoia is full of flowers as well. The plums are coming in and the apricots. Hopefully they won't all ripen at once and will give me some time to do some canning.

Our CSA box has been full of goodies. We got two kinds of chard this week, bok choy, strawberries, potatoes, cauliflower and basil. Can't wait to get cooking.
