Finally back home after traipsing all over Ontario for a couple of weeks.

The huckleberries are still holding on strong, to my delight, and I'll be out to harvest some of them this week. The blackberries and salal are starting to come into their own which is nice too, although they are at least three weeks away from intensive harvest. Haven't checkd my secrete wild raspberry patches yet.

The water was cold yesterday at the beach, on the flood tide, but it didn't stop us from swimming at Bowen Bay and later consuming a supper of grilled veggies with sundried tomato pesto on Italian bread with salad and one of the most intensively perfumed melons I have ever eaten.

This is what summer is all about.
