It’s Midsummer, the Summer Solstice, the longest day–celebrate!
For myself I sometimes find it hard to celebrate summer, because I have less time to myself with school being out, and the Virginia heat can be oppressive in the 90s with high humidity. Lots of bugs. But it’s also the time when my peppers start to ripen, deep greens, bright reds and yellows. And hopefully that will combine with a nice crop of Roma tomatoes so I can mix up some pico de gallo.
The longest day also means its hard for my son to get to sleep at his prescribed bedtime, my sis’s bday is coming right up, and it’s almost my dog’s 15th bday. She’s a 4th of July puppy. It’s also time to visit the parents’ pool and cook-out s’mores in the evening by a campfire or simply grill hamburgers and bbq chicken.
So celebrate Midsummer!
