It's (kinda-sorta-maybe) beginning to feel like summer.
It is warming, I think we can all agree on that. However, I'm observing a bank of fog rolling in outside my kitchen window right now and it really has me worried.
Are we set to have another mild summer like the one we had last year?!
Ironically, the only place that's screaming out *summertime* these days is the produce isle of Costco with it's mountains of organic berries and grapes. I found myself there today, staring up at all that fruit and thinking, "Winter is coming, I better get canning!"
And so I bought 8lbs of grapes, 4lbs. of raspberries, 4lbs. of blueberries and 3.5lbs. of blackberries. I intend to spend the better part of Sunday channeling my mid-western grandmothers and making things like Blueberry and Meyer Lemon Marmalade, Raspberry Jam with Mint and Lavender, and Daddy's favorite, Old Fashion Blackberry Jelly.
