At long last, I do believe we can call it summer here in the Bluegrass. The farms around us are cutting and baling hay (and I'm ever so grateful we don't do that anymore) and I'm trying hard to catch up on the mowing. The garden looks hopeless and I'm not sure if I'm physically going to be able to do much about it this year. We've eaten our share of asparagus, enjoyed a short-lived strawberry crop (the peacock somehow missed the berries this year) and until I get the beds in better shape, there's not going to be much happening out there for a while.

If you want a good report on the 2014 Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival, please go read Mary Jane's blog post. It sounds to me like she had a good time while she was here! We loved having her and hope she'll come back again.
I'll be back soon with a report on Squam and on the fabulous eco-dyeing workshop I recently took from Nicola Brown. Who knew eucalyptus leaves and rusty water could be so much fun?
