“Rough waters ahead for BC’s sockeye salmon season”…”Season’s eatings”…
Despite a major salmon run expected on British Columbia’s Fraser river fishery, high water temperatures are weighing in cautiously on expectations for this year’s catch.
Sockeye, “the money fish,” prized around the world and in strong international demand for its high fat content & flavour was moderate in catch on Monday when, believe it or not, just a three hour opening was available to commercial fishermen!…
Cheers to ’tis the season & many happy returns!!!…
As Grandad used to tease Dad about Mom—“nice catch!”
It seems fewer than 1 in 10 know when some of their nation’s most popular fruits & vegetables are in season. Supermarkets, they say, with the year round availability of everything, do little to help in that.
Cheers to neighbourhood farmers’ markets—buy local & fresh!…
Have you had any summer corn-on-the-cob yet?!…buttery & sweet, the tendency can be to devour. Remember, showing some restraint smiles nibble-it!!
Weather means more when you have a garden. There’s nothing like listening to a shower and thinking how it is soaking in around your green beans. ~Marcelene Cox
I used to visit and revisit it a dozen times a day, and stand in deep contemplation over my vegetable progeny with a love that nobody could share or conceive of who had never taken part in the process of creation. It was one of the most bewitching sights in the world to observe a hill of beans thrusting aside the soil, or a rose of early peas just peeping forth sufficiently to trace a line of delicate green. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mosses from and Old Manse
Plant carrots in January and you’ll never have to eat carrots. ~Author Unknown
There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace. ~Aldo Leopold
Plants cry their gratitude for the sun in green joy. ~Terri Guillemets
Your mind is a garden, your thoughts are the seeds,
The harvest can be either flowers or weeds.
Cheers to exuberance & vitality—the corn is green!
Whatever’s set to aMAZE you today, have a field day!!!
