Actually, without the typical humidity we would have with this heat in july, it's not so bad. It's almost 90 degrees but it is breezy and not bad at all. Now if we could just get rid of the humidity for the rest of the summer. I am trying to grow peppercorns for the first time this year and they need high humidity so maybe they have a chance here with our usual summer weather. I just had a look at the beds and i swear the garlic has grow 2 inches since this morning. The peas are jumping out of the ground. They sure are enjoying this weather. I was writing a letter this morning and when I dated it I noticed that it is 8 months until Christmas. HO HO HO!! That's hot hot hot without the t's!!!! The yin and yang of blogging.
After many many years I am back to using dish clothes. I want to cut back on paper use so I found someone that is making old fashioned dish clothes and I am going to try to use far less paper towels by revisiting my childhood.
HOW COOL ARE THESE???? My son gave me these for my birthday. A local artist buys old sterling silver spoons and turns them into these skull spoons.
Help! If I don't eat the chives they might eat me! Does anyone have any ideas about how to use up a lot of chives? Like LOTS of chives. I made this potato salad which uses quite a bit but not nearly enough. This salad is made with just potatoes and hard boiled eggs, a bit of mayo and sour cream, s&p and chives. i did not put in the usual things like onions and celery because i wanted the pure chive flavor to come through. After sitting in the frig overnight i achieved the taste i was hoping for. It tastes like spring.
This bed was covered with snow in a recent post. Today it will be 90 degrees here. Go figure!
My future garden being hardened off. My loofahs are in here and have sprouted.
A last look at the phlox on bloom just before sunrise.
I am a mother of two humans and one wonderful puppy. I cook, bake, garden and sleep. The first three a lot more than the last one! And i dabble. I have many collections but none as special as my witches. I have been collecting for over 20 years and have amassed one of the largest authentic witch collections in existence.
