My sister (in-law, but just as close as my blood sister) is getting married this Saturday.
That's three days.
I'm in the wedding.
I've also been dubbed the official coordinator.
My kitchen table has been covered with my computer, clip board, and lists upon lists for the past week. We have a very busy three days ahead of us, starting with making centerpieces and flower arrangements tonight. That is why you get nothing buy glaring, unedited pictures of my garden.
On top of all that summer is creeping upon us and the gardens are producing and I have so much to do here at home. And not enough time. All of my delicate greens are starting to bolt, and I will have to just sadly let them go as I don't have time to mess with them. The cilantro I will just say was intentional, with the idea that I will get coriander. ;)
I spent two hours on Tuesday picking berries. 10.5 pounds of berries for that day alone. There are more ready today.
I need to make jam. I am just putting the berries in the freezer until next week when I can get to them.
I just finished cooking beet greens that were on their way out.
My grandmother gave me a gigantic bag of basil last night, so I need to make pesto today.
I can feel the panic of too many things and not enough time creeping in, but I am working hard to keep it at bay.
My hair is up.
My apron is on.
