Camas (Camassia quamash) blooming in the prairie, 5/25/10.

I still don't have enough camas to eat, and it is my goal eventually to have an autumn meal of salmon dressed with lomatium sprigs and allium bulbs, with roasted camas. In the meantime, I am happy to celebrate its lovely bloom every May.

It has been a musical harvest lately, though, with Richard Kriehn's wonderful CD of mandolin music finished a couple of weeks ago and I will finish mixing Tiana Gregg's third (!) CD tomorrow.

As for planting, I am about to start making YouTube videos of some of my gourd banjo repertoire, the first step in putting that music in the world. Stay tuned.
