Hard to believe, but here we are in August already. Summer in the northeast is fleeting. Long days as the sun rises very early and lingers well into the evening. Days filled with kids activities, camps, sports, vacations and entertaining. Summer is the time to enjoy, have fun and license to sit back on a shady porch or hammock and just ‘be’. The vegetable garden is thriving despite the drought that has been plaguing our area this summer, and as evidenced above the tomatoes are turning. August is the time to drink in all that remains of the season and fortunately there is still plenty of it. Soon enough it will be back to school and all that it entails, so for now, make the most of these wonderful days.
