July Fever

Hello wonderful readers! July is the busy season! The weather the past week or so has really pumped the summer produce into action! We've had days in the high 90's, with nights in the 50's-60's range. The watermelons are noticeably larger every day, bell peppers are ready for picking, and there are green tomatoes on the vine! Matt has been picking the okra daily, as well as getting up early to pick squash blossoms! It's all so exciting, the exclamation points are necessary! As it's pretty late, and we've got a big picking day coming up in the morning, I will post pictures rather than words to show you all what is happening around here:

So much squash it's tipping the scale! When Matt picked up this old-timey scale, I was pretty skeptical about it's accuracy... it works, but this squash is over it's weight limit!


Squash Blossoms are beautiful and edible! The most common recipe is to stuff them with cheese and/or chopped veggies, then egg batter and fry in olive oil.

Matt's Happiness:




At the market last weekend:


My new favorite pasttime is picking gigantic tomato horn worms off of the tomatoes. These fat, squirmy pests like to munch the tops of the tomato plant, both the leaves and the leading growth, which will stunt and kill the plant. The chickens were a little wary of eating them though--that horn is sharp!


After a stunning monsoon afternoon, we were gifted an equally impressive, longlasting sunset!
