|I had the opportunity to garden-sit for my friends Janet and Tom. |
I was rewarded mightily!
Y'all. It's Summer.
Did anyone else notice?
Until last week, it had been uncharacteristically temperate in Central Texas. That is to say, there were no reports of heat stroke. The ground had yet to crack. We had rain. (!!!) Humidity was manageable. Most days were decent hair days.
Until last week.
Last week it was steamy, and sweltering, and hovering close to 100 degrees each day. Last week, I moved from perspiring to flat out sweating like swine.
And my hair? So sad. So very, very sad.
On days like these who feels like a heavy meal and a hot kitchen? What we need is fast, light, healthy, and low effort.
And the markets, farms, and gardens are ready to accommodate! Our recent weekend trip to a local farmers market netted a gorgeous, healthy haul, and inspired us, even if the weather that morning most assuredly did not.
So take a gander at some of our favorites, here, and follow the links below each image for all the skinny on our summertime go-to's.
With the time and energy saved, why not find a hammock, a good book, and a tall glass of iced tea? Because it's........
Summertime, and the living is easy.
Drop back by tomorrow, and see what's going on In The Garden: June. We'd love to see you!
And, hey, stay cool, y'all!
