This weekend included a sunset picnic by the river with friends, Tour de France viewings, mulching of some paths in the garden, summer reading prizes from the library, and a trip to the farmers market.

Additionally, we harvested the first two beans of the season and a lot of basil Rudi’s going to turn into pesto:

First Bean of the Season

I went back to Poolesville for another round of blueberry picking, after which I stopped to check out the status of the nearby sunflower fields:

I Don't Often Feel Short

Rudi and I went out for a six-course dessert tasting at Dolci Gelati:

Gelato sundae!

(That’s a Fragola sundae with scoops of honey fig mascarpone gelato and avocado basil gelato substituted for strawberry.)

I also read a book, knit on my shawlette, swam, and stopped in at a neighborhood concert:

Weekending along with Karen at Pumpkin Sunrise.

A six-course dessert tasting sounds both delicious and dangerous.

@Karen: Yes. I think it’s a good thing that it was a special event thing, rather than being on the menu all the time.
