I know it’s been a while, but wow, we have been busy—mostly with the garden! Remember how it started?
Well, it has been changing! As you might expect, the radishes were first up!
…and were the first fruits of the garden. It has really gotten over grown–even more so than this photo shows!
The Armenian cucumbers are delicious. This one I caught in time, but often they hide so well I don’t find them till they are huge!
JD with our first beets. We had albino, red, one I call peppermint candy and golden.
Beet salad with blue cheese and chives. Also made beet chips in the oven. They were labor intensive, but yummy! …and rainbow carrots!
Here’s a vegi stir fry with yellow squash, Japanese eggplant, sting beans, banana peppers, chives and basal. All from our garden!
The pumpkin blossoms are so gorgeous and there are lots of tiny, baby pumpkins that will be ready in October!
The sunflowers are bigger than I have ever grown!! The fence is an eight/nine foot deer fence and the tall one is about 5/6 feet above it! The bees love them, too!
Look at how amazingly intricate this dragonfly’s wings are! Nature is so beautiful and available here, so precious and so fragile. It cannot be taken for granted for a moment!
Several weeks ago, we got a serious scare! A wild fire broke out across the river from us. It was about 3 miles away, but when they get going, these fires can move quickly! The El Dorado fire folk did a great job, dousing it with water buckets brought by helicopters and fire retardant dropped from tanker planes. It would have been quite exciting if I hadn’t been so scared!! By end of day it was out!
Now, we can relax! I’m in the sky chair. (Those are my boots) and Lynnie’s in the hammock.
…and enjoy the magnificent evening sky!
Until next time!
