Roasted Potatoes (scrub, dice, toss with olive oil, seasoned salt & pepper, spread on greased cookie sheet and roast at 400 degrees until just tender)
I love granola with cold milk for breakfast in the summer, topping with fresh fruit when we have it. Because I don't make it all the time, I keep the ingredients in a box in my freezer. It keeps everything fresh and at the ready when I want to whip up another batch.
This summer, we spent a whopping $9 per window and bought cheap roller shades for our south facing windows downstairs to keep out the hot, afternoon sun. The difference is incredible. Why did we wait so long?
Thankful for wood to burn while missing our shade.
Tomatoes. They're not the greatest looking, but they've promised me they'll produce.
Why shouldn't we plant leftover sweet potato plants in feed bags?
The red raspberries are taller than I am. Even though they failed to produce an early summer crop, the late summer one looks very promising.
Pathetic peppers. Between the wind storm and the heat, they're a sorry looking bunch. I may have to rely on the farmer's market for peppers this year. The lack of mulch in this section of the garden may have something to do with it. If only there were more hours in a day....
These two stinkers were caught INside the garden and are the reason we have no beets, no spinach and no carrots. The garden fencing we use has smaller openings at the bottom and larger ones toward the top. Jamey has seen them run, jump, and wiggle through the higher openings. Buggers.
The zucchinis are going crazy so I've started baking eight loaves of zucchini bread every morning and incorporating them in every dinner to keep from being buried.
Trying to keep up. I know, Mama. It's a never-ending job.
Sunflowers reaching for the sky.
