July

Oh, It's hot. 

{We had more West Aussie Visitors. This time a big Walking Dead fan. We took them touring.}
Is it October yet ??

The garden thinks it's hot, too. 90 degree temps, but it cooled off a bit this weekend and we had a great July 4 celebration with all of my family and all of the grandkids at Nana and Pops ! {woops no photo of that, but plenty of the garden}












I love fresh food.
Garden therapy is so good.
Plenty of green tomatoes right now, I am thinking of picking a bunch and making a batch of green tomatoe chutney. I love it in the winter on top of a big fried pork chop :)

My no-buy tomatoes are slowly growing. Johnny is out there tonite putting some of them in the ground. Still quite late, we will see what they do. We've got about 20+ tomatoe plants in total. Several bell pepper, some hot pepper varieties, Indian and regular yellow corn, Wildwood Pumpkins, several different winter pumpkin varieties, okra, cucumbers, carrots. lettuce, and oh did you see that CANDY ROASTER ?   I think it will be ready to pick soon - I am going to make a PIE.

In unrelated news, we went antiquing in Alabama over the weekend ! 
Lots of goodies, I will have to show you next time . 

Now for the big announcement !
