July 9, 2012


Cats are perverse.  On a cold winter night when one could appreciate a warm fuzzy beast in one’s lap, they are no where to be seen. On an evening when temps are still in the high 80s – then they want to get up close and personal… I swear she stays up nights planning ways to annoy us.

Our grape tomatoes on the deck are finally ripening and we’ve had several salads off of them.  They have wonderful, fresh flavor and our colors range from red to orange to yellow.  I just wish our main crop tomatoes would come along faster.  However, there are lots of young tomatoes developing and lots and lots of flowers.  Lots of flowers on the squash and cucumber plants too – but only one sex.  We’ll have to bring Dr. Ruth in to talk to them, I guess.  And we’ll get another double batch of pesto this week. The basil is really going nuts this year.

This afternoon I got a new cookbook in today called The Farm.  It looks to be quite interesting – I love settling down with with a really good new cookbook. I guess that is why I have so many of them….I think we’re about at 800 now. So enough already.  A book has to have something special now before I pull out the old credit card…
