It should take about 2 seconds fit the laundry to dry today; it’s in the mid-80s in the shade, but our porch is easily 10 to 20 degrees hotter, thanks to the sun reflecting off the house and deck. Add in a nice breeze and you get perfect laundry-drying conditions. The only downside is having to get baked myself, standing out to hang things up.
The rest of the yard is pretty sunny, except for the shady corner I’m sitting in, thanks to a tall and leafy poplar tree in the neighbor’s yard.
In other summer-type news, I got our first CSA pickup in Friday. We now have more lettuce than we can possibly eat in a week.
This is what the CSA looks like. The white board tells what we’re getting, and how many of each; the veggies themselves live in the blue bins, for freshness, I assume. I select which specific veggies I want from the bins.
Also in summery news, Benji has started finding red, ripe strawberries in our berry patch.
He’s actually quite good at only picking all-red berries, and checking with us before picking (usually). I’m kind of expecting some kind of fecal repercussions from this increased berry consumption, but so far, so good.
Finally, I don’t have a picture, but I think I saw a bird nesting in one of our hanging baskets. I hope so, because Benji would love that. I doubt it’ll stick, though, because we water the pallets every night.
