Here in suburban CT, it is so exciting to see wildlife. We see turkeys and deer and of course squirrels, birds, chipmunks and other small critters. Today I went just up the road apiece to Shelton, a mostly suburban town with rural pockets still remaining. On my way into the farm for my weekly share of produce, I saw 7 cows running! I have seen many cows on rural trips but always grazing, or lying under a tree. These guys were on a mission!
This time of year, I am enjoying the share options more than earlier in the season. Today we have lots of tomatoes – sweet and juicy. I can eat them as a snack. Cucumbers, still warm from the field, eggplant, grape tomatoes, sweet as candy. A little kale (Still. It never ends.), sweet and hot peppers. Can’t wait to roast them up tomorrow.
Simple summer eating, and healthy to boot. Enjoy the simple pleasures.
