A good way to spend a day

Twenty-one rows and the start of the third set of branches, a trip to Andy’s Orchard where I got some of the last of the fresh figs of the season–SO good–and some dried Blenheim apricot slabs for my mom, and a visit this evening by friends bearing homemade goodies.

I went outside and cut a pomegranate off my tree and told them to come back for more later–they’re good now, but they’ll keep ripening and get even better.

I sent them home with a bunch of those figs, too, because they love them as much as I do and there were so many in that box and it would be criminal to have them not be enjoyed at their newest and best.

Meantime, I’m hoping the (already stratified) cherry seeds sprout that their son decided needed saving for me because the cherries I gave them from Andy’s were so good a few months ago. They haven’t yet. They’re in nature’s time zone. I’ll just have to wait.

Sounds like it was a good day. I had a good day today – went to a fibre festival. Local one that I missed for two years.

It was well organized, well spaced, although fewer vendors than previous years. I felt very safe with my mask and hand sanitizer. I bought a few things (of course) because so many are local farmers and makers.

Will send you some pics of the gorgeous stuff I got.

I love that you have so much fruit available to you in your garden. It is a mouthwatering dream for me. I also read your next post regarding Graves. I do so hope you get some answers soon.
