We are thrilled that the weather has finally changed. It’s gone from cold to hot, from rainy to not-rainy, but thankfully not dry. Tonight it’s supposed to get chilly, which is good for all manner of growing things, and the lilacs, which perfume our world. And the mushrooms, which we don’t usually look for. But these guys found us, on a walk with the dogs.
This is not recommendation to eat things you find in the wild, especially mushrooms! But we checked these out with our neighbor, and he knows his mushrooms.
Also doing great is the rhubarb.
Here is the rhubarb a few weeks ago, and now it’s long and lanky, nearly wilting when it gets just a little hot. I am going out into the garden to cut some stalks and gently stew them with raspberries, frozen from last year.
