I'm getting frantic. Our CEO came back from the garden with 4 of ten-litre-buckets, full of grapes harvest and he said: 'I haven't even made a dent, there's a lot more out there!'. Now, this set me on a panic mode! Normally, he just brings back one bucket at a time because it takes us a while to finish eating it. But as time goes on, and the grapes hanging on the vines are getting too ripe that it attracts lots of wasp and some of them are literally drying up under the sun.

My dehydrator has been on constantly. One of the girls also goes to the garden and delivers me buckets of figs harvest every week. We can only eat so much fresh fruits in a day, so the urgency of preservation is constantly at my back. It's feels like I'm racing with time everyday.

Our summer brings on these abundance from the garden, but once it's over, it will all wind down for the winter season, only to restart again in spring next year. All is just but for a season.
I sometimes find life overwhelming, but it's important to remember to chill out and take everything a day at a time. Let's go and have a good day today!
