wow - when summer's over, it's over, isn't it? one day you're complaining about the heat, and the next day it's all gourds at the grocery store, zucchini and peaches are nowhere to be found, and you find yourself eating an apple a day again. it seems like raspberries just got here. it's the beauty and the curse of eating seasonally - as much as you love seeing your old friends come back into season, it's hard to let things go. soon, the tomatoes will be gone, and i'll be very sad, but fall spinach and lettuces will come back. we haven't had a green salad in ages. it sounds really good. sometimes, like right now, i crave lettuce. i eat it straight out of the salad spinner. i try not to be a vegetarian stereotype, but sometimes, it can't be helped. we'll be on the west coast next week, and i'll try to get some updates in, but the first priority is seeing all those people we love and stumping around stumptown drinking coffee, beer, and generally doing city stuff that we don't get to do here. luckilly, we have a friend staying at our house while we're gone, which assuages my fear of spontaneous combustion. i'll try to get to the wednesday downtown market in portland next week to see what they have, and do my best not to get insanely jealous over the variety and long growing season.
