I picked some marvelous things under sunny skies this morning . . .
Today's lunch: romaine, radicchio, tomatoes, cucumber, calendula, all organic, all from the Brookfield Farm, the CSA in South Amherst I've belonged to for 15 years.
If you are what you eat, then I am the Brookfield Farm. Do you belong to a CSA or have a garden? What have you been picking and feasting on?
In other news: it's Snickers's adoption anniversary. She had her annual check-up today and was pronounced in excellent health and at an ideal weight. The vet and assistant cooed over her soft fur, her gentle manner, her beautiful eyes. None of this praise made her any happier to be there, though--she got back in her carrier as fast as she could the second the exam was over.
She is the most joyful, affectionate little cat I've ever known. It's been a wonderful year, and I hope we have many more together.
