Summer Gala

Gala set  a nice crop again this year, as it does every year.  The ones here are very firm and sweet, with a rush of banana essence at your first bite.  The ones in the store are tasteless right now, and if it wasn’t competing against the nectarines, this would dominate the summer fruit menu here at our house.

But being a school district construction manager, ripening Galas also bring about an urgency that school starts in a couple weeks, and the new classrooms are not ready for students yet.  Some day when I’m retired I’ll probably enjoy seeing the Galas ripen, but for right now they just mean that I’m late and running out of time.
