Not so showey.
How does your garden grow?
With this much rain
And forecast sun...
Maybe more will come up in the row?
Here it is past the middle of August, and I’m still waiting for some of my sweet peas to poke through the ground.
Ever the optimist, I guess…
The ones that came early are finally starting to bloom.
And, joy of joys, the lavatera is blooming, too.
Of course there is always an abundance of that. So far, I’ve used it in stir fries, salad, casseroles and muffins.
Have you ever noticed how hard it is to give zucchini away? Everyone has lots of their own.
Several years ago, I enjoyed a 4-H speech on this wondrous vegetable. The speaker had several strategies for getting rid of zucchini. The only one I recall is, “Take it to church and after the service starts, put one in every vehicle. This works best if you attend a church with a large, trusting congregation. Large because you’ll need a lot of cars – Trusting because they have to leave the cars unlocked.”
Hmmm…might have to try that next weekend….
In the meanwhile, I hope your summer is going well…
By the way, how are you fixed for zucchini? What church did you say you attend?
