Dateline: 16 July 2013
July is a great month for juicing. The garden is bursting with greens.
It is a down-to-earth pleasure to sip a mug of fresh-juiced fruits and vegetables, while sitting in my Adirondack chair (made it myself), on the back patio, first thing in the morning.
That lovely green drink you see was made with romaine lettuce, chard, carrots, apples, lemon and ginger. Marlene made nearly a half gallon to enjoy through the day, but it is best when fresh.
As for the cat, she is Momma, a stray that showed up here a couple years ago, pregnant. We kept one of the kittens and named her Baby. Momma and Baby are great mousers (and chipmunkers), but they also catch and kill birds (which is upsetting).
Here's wishing you pleasant July mornings with a mug of some drink that you enjoy....
