Summertime, and the Livin’ is Busy

I’ve had a busy couple of weeks: between staying ahead of my garden and keeping up with writing projects and clients I haven’t had a lot of free time.

The Patio–not just decor, this garden supplies herbs to my kitchen.

Fortunately I’ve got a break: I’m flying off on an exciting big city adventure! Toronto here I come. Well, GTA, here I come . . . I like Toronto, but in 20 years of travelling there several times a year, I think I’ve only actually spent a total of four days in the city, so it still seems like a strange place to me, but business is business and travelling for pleasure never seems to take me to the exotic places in my own country.

On the other hand, all this will be waiting for me when I return!

Raspberries, currants, apples, potatoes, basil, tomatoes, artichokes, beets, turnips, zucchini, squash, beans, broccoli, carrots, lettuces, cabbages, horseradish, celeriac . . . et cetera

I’ve got some cool new stuff in the pipeline: I’m shooting video, but while I’m great in front of the camera, I’m┬ánot as competent behind it. I hope I’ll have something better than a blooper reel next week.

I’m also bent on getting some all-grain brewing done. One of my current projects is to get my full brewing setup back on-line, and it’s happening. I’m drilling holes in pots, connecting mash screens and generally planning stuff up–wait until you see my new grain grinder (one of the video topics to come).

Beyond that, as always I’ve got a million words to write and many other promises to keep. Hurray for self-employment, my boss never lets up on me!

Whoops! Time to pack, and I’ve got to water the gardens before I leave.
