It looks like summer weather has finally arrived. We’ve been teased with it here in Pennsylvania since March, but at last I think it’s here to stay.

I’ve been picking fresh strawberries by the handful for a few weeks now, but this is an example of what I’ve been picking every morning for the past few days. The picture doesn’t really show that this is a 3-quart bowl.

We’ve also been eating salads with our fresh lettuce, and are anxiously waiting for beans, tomatoes, corn, broccoli, cucumbers, blueberries, raspberries, cherries and, eventually, apples.

I think being an historical fiction author has made me realize how important it is to be a good steward of the land. I don’t use any pesticides or fertilizers of any kind, so I know what I’m eating is fresh and natural.

The best part is going outside every morning to see what Mother Earth made for us overnight.
