June 8: Cherry happy.
It’s cherry season! (And we’re doing our best to eat a few bushels before we leave.)

August 4: An Apple a Day …
When our new friend came over to play earlier this week, the kiddos spent some time gathering apples that had fallen on neighborhood sidewalks. The apples were pretty gnarly — rained on, stepped on, squished into drain grates — so I didn’t plan to let them eat any. But as they were exclaiming to each other over a new find, a man came out from a house and yelled something at me. I thought he was upset with us for taking his apples, and I tried to explain that we’d gotten them from the sidewalk across the street. Instead, I finally realized, he was telling us to put down the ones we had collected … and he handed me a big bucket of red apples from his own tree. I started to pick out a couple and he insisted we take them all. They were dented and dirty and ripe and authentic and delicious. We couldn’t eat them fast enough!

July 18: Grapes. These gorgeous grape vines were nonchalantly peeking through the fence of a house down the street. I also routinely see cherry and apple trees growing wherever they feel like it. It’s amazing, the bounty hidden in these city streets, and one day I might just pack some up in a bucket and take it home to enjoy!
