Soups & Sweet Treat 9.20.18

I read yesterday, on the NOAA Burlington site, that we have had 80 days 80 or over this year. I for one say yuck!  Heat and humidity are not my things. I crave the crisp days of fall, spring – and even winter. Sweatshirts, increased energy level, and SOUP weather. If the meteorologists are to believed today will be the last hot one for a while!  Thursday the highs will be in the 60s and lows may dip into the 40s. Time to tuck into a quart or two of soup!

Spring is finally, really here!  Signs around my yard – daffodils, tulips, baby leaves, lettuce and chard growing, cherry blossoms – AND an orphaned baby squirrel that has taken up residence in my chicken coop. As a gardener I am not fond of what I call “tree rats”. However, this little rodent is bringing out my nurturing instincts. Hopefully he/she will join the other squirrels soon, OR become a chicken. Nature is always full of surprises.

Enjoy the sunshine and new growth this week. Order a quart or two of soup, and maybe enjoy it outside!
