Enjoying the moment

I love this time of year - the evenings are long - planting is still going on.  There is the in terminal battle with the weeds, warm sunny weather, lovely sunsets, the birds are chirpy and all feels at one with world.
As you may guess this is my most favourite season - produce is starting to drift in - lettuces are doing well this year, strawberries and raspberries too.  We have had the odd picking of a pale yellow mangetout pea too!
All of this keeps me sane whilst juggling a working life and family. There is nothing more satisfying than sowing planting and harvesting - it's what I dream of in the dark winter months - hoping planning and anticipating spring when the process starts again.

I am getting ahead of myself I need to enjoy the present - the colours are starting to develop and the smells and of course the tastes of fresh produce. It is so rewarding and relaxing to enjoy the moment - I hope you stop and enjoy your moments too ! I would love to hear about your special moments you are enjoying!
