It’s time to fish.
The lawn needs mowing, I’m not even trying to keep up with the weeds, and even with daily picking, my strawberries are out of control. No time for yard work at the moment.
By the time you read this, the last of those berries will have been picked over by the birds, and we will be eating raspberries, hand over fist. We will have filled our freezer with salmon for the winter and will be busy filling our buckets with blueberries. These are just some of the gifts Alaska provides our family each year.
Hunting, fishing, and gathering set a seasonal heartbeat for many Alaskans. Halibut. Mushrooms. Bear. Salmon. Caribou. Duck. Moose. Berries. Rabbit. Ptarmigan. It’s a beat that has been heard for eons.
I’m not going to call out each article this month; I’ll let you peruse on your own. Instead, I’ll say that it’s time to go out and give thanks to Alaska for all she has to offer and all that she provides.
As always, thank you for reading
