Still a holiday...

...so I'm still playing hooky!

I've heard that there are parts of the country where gardens have flopped this summer. Understandable, given the extremes in weather we've had. Ours? Not flopping. In fact, the gardens have produced such bumper crops the plants are practically tossing veggies onto the lawn in an effort to divest themselves of the heavy loads they carry. We can't pick the stuff fast enough. Of course that means canning and freezing (as well as leaving bags of produce on unsuspecting neighbors' doorsteps!) so part of my holiday hooky day will be spent harvesting. I don't mind, especially not when the sky is that deep cerulean blue I love so much and butterflies waft past my nose on gentle breezes.

No, not a bad gig at all. :)

Hope you're spending your holiday doing something you enjoy!

Ha...I love the image of plants "tossing" their veggies onto the lawn :)
