Summer Solstice

Wednesday, June 21, 2017

The summer solstice is here! The longest day of the year is here - hours of daylight of course. It's 24 hours in total like every other day. We had intentions of heading out for a walk to see the sun rise this morning but we changed our minds at 4am (well, I did) although I did have to get up at 4:45am to take a loaf out of the breadmaker so in fact did see the sun very early anyway. Last night I was particullarly tired, another example of how exhausting summer can be. We've got so many strawberries that jam making is inevitable so 16 pots were made last night and I finished mopping up jam at about 10:30 and was shattered. The harvest, although miraculous, is too much in a condensed period of time. Many hours are spent picking and dealing with fruit and veg to the extent that it's draining. I shouldn't complain but it keeps us so busy.


Enjoy your longest day.

  1. Oh no! The Solstice is really important to my Mum and she had to spend it looking after my school kids in a trip. I had forgotten the date!

  2. I often wonder how you find the time to do all the things you do. Just keeping my few plants watered and tended takes up enough time, and entire allotment would be too much for me I think... worth it for all that lovely jam though :)
