Wow, June!

Quiet roads in Concord with the girls
May brought fewer days on the bike and more days in the garden. Friends are gearing up for summer events, (Jennifer and Amy are already underway with a swim event in Majorca), but I'm still dragging my feet a bit, (although on a good track for a return). I've settled on a good nutrition and workout routine that has shown slow progress but moving in the right direction, so I'm happy with that.

Lila is planning a weekend for all of us to get together in Western Massachusetts for some riding and running this month. I'm looking forward to that! Meanwhile, a few of us are low-key training with Alison as she preps for her Ironman in October. I'm not joining in on the Tuesday night swims, but I'm down for riding on Saturdays. It almost feels like a return to my Saturday morning breakfast rides with the Cyclopaths.

Running is on hold for a while, but hopefully by July/August I'll be back at it.

I installed a drip irrigation system in my raised bed garden this year, and have most of my vegetables planted for the summer, (still looking for tomatillos). In the garden this year: Tomatoes, cucumbers, bush zucchini, snap beans, broccoli, kale, brussels sprouts, spring peas, onions, garlic, carrots, caribou potatoes, russet potatoes, carola potatoes, celery, and several varieties of peppers. The herbs: basil, cilantro, mint, rosemary, thyme, dill, and sage. 

We'll have a healthy harvest this summer!

Excited for the summer!
