 h1. Dear readers,
 I'm enjoying the changing flavor of my raspberries. The first fruit came in late June, and the berries were new and plump, and gorge-worthy. Gorge on them I did, mostly out of hand because they were so irresistible. 

 Then there was a pause, while the canes recharged. Now comes the second wave of berries, and they're still good — but the flavor is darker, more winy, less sweet. The canes are tired, perhaps — the fruit more of an effort. We're on the shoulder of the season, and we can taste it in what we eat.

 Fall officially began yesterday, but here in the Pacific Northwest, the days are still warm; the Crenshaw melon we ate at dinner last night was all about summer. 

 We've got a fork in two seasons, lucky us. We're tasting time, as it were.

 Laura Parker wants us to taste place as well. Read Anne Zimmerman's [/articles/features/lauraparkertasteofplace?utmsource=NL20090923&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=TastingDirt&utmcampaign=Tastingtime "account of her visit"] to Laura's "Taste of Place" show, where she sampled … dirt itself.
