The Stillness of Midsummer

What we affectionately call the Pecan Grove --
a peaceful view of a ceiling of branches and leaves.
Trees this large are overwhelming to look into.
I never showed you my birthday dinner. 
That was nearly two months ago, but the photo has stayed on my camera.
We don't eat much beef, but Adam made a delectable steak, 
mashed sweet potatoes, and broccoli. And Texas toast.
It wasn't off the farm, but it was yummy.
Last night's dinner was so colorful! The cucumbers and tomatoes 
and yes -- some of the apples came from our farm. 
The corn came from a friend with an acre of sweet corn.
I feel us heading into the end of summer, into a second shift on the farm. I started asparagus, which is looking lovely. Adam will put it into raised beds. This morning I started new yellow squash and zucchini seeds. We want fall crops too, and since we have a long growing season here there are some things we can grow twice with good timing. No more tomatoes, though! No more cucumbers either. We have figs coming in each day. I'm taking some to the farmers' market, and we'll see if anybody is interested.

  1. Yummy meals! Bravo on your productivity! :)

  2. Lovely, lovely, lovely! Isn't it wonderful to live where y'all have beautiful spaces like this?

  3. It is almost supper time and now I'm really hungry after looking at that delicious food.


Hello! I hope you leave a word ~ I will get back to it as soon as I can!
