Visiting family, celebrating Camille’s birthday, partying with our old neighbors, catching the rose virus, harvesting garden abundance and playing around at work all in one great month!
GOODBYES AND HELLOS IN JERSEY
Joe, Camille and Jim said goodbye to Nana and Grandpa and spend the evening at Shawn and Frank’s and more at: One Day in Jersey
OUR DINNER WITH NED
And Maureen, out on the town at a super nice restaurant in honor of Camille’s 61st birthday.
Camille ate cake and Steph cuddled a giant wombat on their respective birthday’s June 4th and 8th.
A LAUGHING MATTER
Sometimes the first wish that comes to mind is laughable, but one must button down that smile long enough to pucker up and blow out the candles.
It wasn’t really an Oilseed Community reunion but when we saw Simon and Jessica at Matt and Dana’s Engagement Party, it sure felt like old times. More photos at: Matt and Dana’s Engagement Party
At The Plant, it’s often difficult to distinguish work from play.
ONE SNIFF AND YOU’RE HOOKED
Camille caught a the hybrid tea bug and Haruka and Bob fanned the flames. To see what happened next, please visit: Rosemania
LIFE AND DEATH IN THE BACKYARD
Gardening has become our favorite pastime. See what all we’ve been up to on Our Fertile Gardens page.
POSSUM AT THE FEEDER
This poor bedraggled critter catching an easy meal underneath the bird feeder looked so cute Camille had to stalk it with the camera, causing it to limp across the yard, squeeze through the fence and crawl into a muddy pipe in the ditch.
CRAZY ABOUT FOOD
Tofu and spinach manicotti, vegan cheez and baked summer squash with ‘parmesan’ and bread crumbs and baklava from Angelina’s Kitchen.
THEN THE RAINS CAME
It rained so hard the last couple of days in June that a river of water flowed down the Moncure-Pittsboro Road, bringing enough debris to create a traffic hazard. The Fire Department had to block off the road and remove the gravel that had washed down from the Stump Dump.

“Throughout the rough years the Greek alphabet had leaked out of his mind a letter at a time – in fact, the candle of knowledge he had set out with had burned down to a sorry stub.” – Larry McMurtry from Lonesome Dove
“A sobering thought…” What if, right at this very moment, I *am* living up to my full potential?” – Jane Wagner
“It is a do-it-yourself era: health care, real estate, police investigation. Go online and f*ing figure it out for yourself because everyone’s overworked and understaffed.” – Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl
