It’s been a busy summer. Lots of gardening, sunshine, and seafood. I thought I’d put up a “Yums” post to share some of it with you. Consider it a photo essay version of that old first week of school standby - “What I Did On My Summer Vacation”. Except, I’ve still got another month to keep doing it!

What are you doing this summer? Vacation, stay-cation, relaxation? Whatever you’re up to, I hope you’re traveling safe and eating well. Share your favorite summer tidbits with me in the comments!
