Some things are built to last a life-time, others not. Even the longest lived edifices eventually lose relevance and utility. What can be scavenged and recycled is. The rest remains to slowly crumble and decay. Yet what has been abandoned often becomes foundation for life anew, cross species. A reef in the ocean is such a structure. An overgrown abandoned factory can be too. Insects, rodents, plants, fungi, and birds all find viable safe haven where mankind has ceased to toil and tarry. Human consequence has been and continues to be devastatingly significant. But not extinguishing.

The abundance of summer harvest is so very welcomed for all who have invested labor and love. And barring excess fertilizers, carbon expenditures, and non-degradable pesticides, the consequence for the rest of nature seems relatively benign. Recognizing the fragile transience of life and rarity of peaceful security makes biting into rich fragrant summer fruit all the more wonderfully special.

May your summer harvest bring exceptional joy to both you and yours.
