Warm weather, tasty food, good friends. And on top of that, our midsummer’s dinner was during the annual Perseid meteor shower, which we watched from the backyard, lying on blankets. A classic evening at the farm, indeed.
Craig took over documenting the evening, and he is a much more accomplished photographer than I. So please do check out the photos. They’re a real treat.
After Boo and Craig arrive and get settled, we take a little tour of the farm. First, the back orchards, flowers and bees:
The vegetable garden in front:
Here’s an angle on the porch I’ve never seen:
Speaking of the porch. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
Pickled, brined things.
Before supper, the table is set:
But first, we have to hang the lanterns.
And, we’ll look at the bees and some of the plants in the orchards:
Time for supper.
Some chenin blanc from Paumanok:
Tomato and watermelon salad with feta:
Avocado salsa for topping skirt skeak:
The fixin’s for Mexican corn, cotija cheese and mayo:
These peaches are for dessert later:
A la table!
And the fun and conversation continued until late in the night, when we watched the meteors fall whilst on the Bambi blanket back by the rock.
Happy summer, everyone.
