We've had a couple of rain showers lately, after several dry weeks with temperatures exceeding 100 degrees. I was about ready to throw in the towel, between the heat, the constant watering and fighting squash bugs but it was worth the wait. Now my only problem is using everything up!
We have acorn and spaghetti squash, yellow summer squash, some cucumbers, several green and red peppers plus a few tomatoes.
The porch flowers are doing fine, so is the planter with sweet potato vines - real ones, not ornamental. I can't wait to see if any sweet potatoes grew.
The little chicks are laying- the three are from the new Buffs, the larger is for comparison. We can have a teensy weensy omelet now.
The plate is Taylor's. You can "play" with your food as you decorate the lady's head LOL! She's a little old for this and doesn't really eat off of it, but I would. You're never too old to have some kid fun.
The tomatillos are next- just about ready to be turned into salsa and a really super sounding authentic Mexican dish using pork- provided by one of our own lovely readers! I'll have to post about that one.
I can't believe we have had our WINDOWS open for a couple of days now. I actually got to use a little throw while laying outside on our lounger during the meteor shower Saturday night.
Life is good.
