enjoying summer in Minnesota

Summer is a great time to be back in Minnesota.  It sure is nice to be somewhere with lots of outdoor space. I can go on a walk or a bike ride and hardly see anything except fields, trees, farms, and (in the evenings), deer crossing the field and road to hide in the woods.

I have also been tending the garden...the black beans that I planted look good.
So do the beets, though my brother is not sure why I planted them.  I told them that he does not have to eat them.

I have also been reading, cooking, cleaning, and spending time with family and friends.  The other day when I was at my brother's house, my niece and I just spent time watching the kittens play.  It has been a long time since I spent summer time doing that, and I had forgotten how entertaining it can be. 
After working so hard at learning Spanish, I have also been spending ten hours every week trying to maintain my language skills.  I read, write, review my Spanish notes, and use the Duolingo app to keep up.  Hopefully soon I will find a few people to practice my conversational skills.  What have you been doing this summer?

Your vegetables look great. How are the cantaloupe doing?
