 h1. Dear readers,
 We know from your notes that many of you appreciate the essays on Culinate, most of which can be found in our [/articles/firstperson?utmsource=NL20090715&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=FirstPersonColumn&utmcampaign=FirstPersonsn "First Person"] department. There's a new one there this week, in fact: [/articles/firstperson/jammaking?utmsource=NL20090715&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Jammaking&utmcampaign=FirstPersons "a big-hearted remembrance"] of her jam-making father-in-law by our managing editor, Caroline Cummins.

 Occasionally, though, an essay will appear elsewhere on the site, as it did this week in the [/mix/dinnerguest?utmsource=NL20090715&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Dinnerguest&utmcampaign=FirstPersons "Dinner Guest Blog"], where [/mix/dinnerguest/thepromiseofatinyorchard?utmsource=NL20090715&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Tinyorchard&utmcampaign=FirstPersons "Joan Menefee"] is swept up in the progress of two cherry trees that sit beyond her garage (but not beyond her reach).

 And finally, one more piece caught our eye this week — from Culinate member and sometimes Dinner Guest blogger Sarah Gilbert: a post filled with [/user/cafemama/blog/currantsjewelsofsummer?utmsource=NL20090715&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Tinyorchard&utmcampaign=FirstPersons "longing for red currants"] (or, as Sarah calls them, "the jewels of summer"). In fact, Sarah's piece is the next finalist in our [/articles/ourtable/Julybloggingcontest?utmsource=NL20090715&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=JulyBlogs&utmcampaign=FirstPersons "July blogging contest."]
