I realize we’re well into summer, but I’ve been thinking a lot about the next few weeks and how I am going to maximize all of this golden light and warm nights. Then I read Hula Seventy’s manifesto and I just had to create my own. Getting it on the interwebs helps us stay accountable. I hope.
i will pick bucketfuls of blackberries.
i will learn how to can things that grow. if not said blackberries, then homegrown tomatoes.
