Bringing in the harvest.

So this has several meanings for us. At the moment we are swimming, no drowning in produce, eggs, fresh fruits and berries. There are also weddings and other target rich work for the camera, prep for the upcoming school year, birthdays (August has like 4, just for the immediate family). There are the fairs (and “required” entries), parks, and the odd nap in the sun… Life at the moment is full. So updates here have gotten sporadic, and probably won’t really fill back in till the weather turns, and the veggies and fruits are all safely tucked into cans, jars, freezer bags and the fall foodstuffs are looking after themselves.

I will try to toss the occasional frame up here, and you can be sure that any really big happenings will be documented (I had to remind myself that the blog is meant to be a more personal thing. No need to get every job posted). To that tune, at the moment though I am looking through over 4,000 personal frames from the last half of June and all of July. I’ll get a few of them loaded, and hopefully by fall, it will all be current again. Just in time to be thrown for a loop by the holidays.

There is also the ever pressing site re-build in progress. There was an initial rush into a design, layout and then graphics, oh yes. Graphics. Odd how that has pressed the need to answer some questions that I have been putting off for several years. So as 2011 approaches, there will be some re-configuring of the pricing for weddings, bringing some very luxurious products into the mix, and revising the coverage that is offered, to fit more with the “wedding story” that will be truly uniquely yours.

So in the mean time, here is a photograph of the yummy snap peas that were on the vine in early June. All these little guys are now taking a freezer nap till they are called on for a fall stir fry. How fast has the summer gone. This planting is about the have the last of the peas harvested, shelled, and frozen (or canned, we haven’t decided yet)..

Summer is finally here…

Well it’s about freezin time.  This has been one of the wettest springs I can ever remember.  Cool too.  We had a wonderful break a few weeks ago and it happened to coincide with a post school year beach party put on my local wedding photographer Kelly Bowie.  (http://kcbphotography.com/blog/)  I think there is something to be said about people who spend lots of time at parties (weddings).  They know how to throw a good party, and not break a sweat doing it.  Good food, good times and SUN!

BAM!  There was SUN!

The water fight got pretty heated.  The bucket was not intended to be included in the toss.  There was a moment of panic

until one of the kind opponents returned the weapon.

Various defensive maneuvers were used…

Eventually all the “kids” were in on the action!

One last shot of that wonderful sun!

Mr. Sol stayed around for the next day or two (wedding from the following day to hit the blog later in the week, oh yes it was beautiful!) and has since headed elsewhere…

Produce!!

We have a great garden in this year.  And on the advice of my dad, I planted a bunch of radishes…  They come up super quick and with an antsy preschooler that’s a good thing.  We went out a few weeks ago and snagged the first couple of radishes for a dinner salad.  Crisp and yummy!  She said I had to put one up on the blog.  So everyone could see it.  And yes.  It’s just a little bigger than a blue berry.

A lazy Sunday…

Had a wonderful dinner at the grandparents house on Sunday.  Our oldest got to pick some Tomatoes with her Grampa, and we took a nice walk through the flowers.  There was a humming bird, really fearless, I’ll see if I can find one of those I liked…

Here are a few of my favorites…

Here are the Tomatoes!

The Peaches aren’t ripe yet, but they will be soon!

Flowers in her hair….

Very busy weekend.  Lots of changes at our church, a tea with wonderful women most of them old enough to be my grandmother.  A birthday party for a very special 5 year old and a “memorial service” for a family/person who isn’t dead.  I did have a little bit of decompression time on Sunday, and my oldest let me try my hand at braiding, with some Ranunculus repens for color.  Nothing like a pro, but not bad for a Dad, right?
