Here is a photo Rebecca took of our share from Bud's farm this week. There was also a sugarbaby watermelon that we forgot to include in the picture. The corn was so sweet I ate a few raw kernels before I dropped the ears into the water.
A gift of grape tomatoes for the neigbhor brings the offer of figs over the garden gate. We swap herbs from each other's gardens. Sage and mint in exchange for a sprig of dill and a handful of basil. And then we go about our way.
I truly love all four seasons, but summer is simply unmatched for the gifts God grants us at this time of year. As the light gives way to darkness, the western sky is nearly breathtaking. The first stars of night shimmer like diamonds against the black and blue backdrop of a summer night. And I think of the words from Habukak. The Lord is in His holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him.
