It’s harvest time. Sometimes difficult to take a moment to communicate.
At this moment, the house is beginning to fill up with the sweet aroma of cotton candy, once again. I love this time of year.
Harvested another 19 lbs of an heirloom cantaloupe today. When picked ripe off the vine, people want to slurp it up. I’ve seen it happen in the past few days. Juices dripping down chins.
One thing that I’ve learned this year is that drying musk melon concentrates the flavor. Most would prefer the taste of a freshly picked melon, as would I. But, mid winter and into spring, I’ll be savoring a taste of summer with those pieces of dried melon.
Another 5 lbs of cherry tomatoes picked off the vines added to the dryer.
Lots of scents intermingling. It includes a branch of sativa that broke off the plant a couple of days ago and a bucket full of lavender flowers. I wonder if I could patent this smell.
