What summer?

Two months ago I was buying pretty summer dresses and new sunhats and dreaming of luscious long summer days of fruit, friends, decadence, sun and quite a lot of wine. It’s the typical mid-November thing to do. The problem is that I’m still dreaming, still waiting, because quite frankly – this summer has been pants!

Windy, rainy, foggy, cloudy, cold, pathetic, rubbishy – all particularly descriptive vocabulary for just how freakin sucky the weather has been over the last two months. I admit there have been a few breakouts of rather tasty weather – but they’ve been far too few for an avid gardener who would like to finally eat her tomatoes now please! I’ve had only two. It’s been my worst growing season ever. It’s enough to make a woman wanna cry.

So I’ve been keeping busy with other gardening pursuits to keep my mind off the weather.  Food forest workshops, greenhouses, weekly gardening sessions and even a touch of blogging have kept me stupidly busy when I should be reaping the rewards of my harvesting. As I hear the rain descending yet again – I’ll take the time to tell you a bit more about them.
