Sunday In The Yard With June


Today was one of those days I wished we lived closer to family. Our reward for spending two hours weeding the neglected garden, flower beds and yard was harvesting all of these:


I’m not sure what we’re going to do with fourteen cucumbers but if I lived closer to the family they would mysteriously appear on front porches or we would be bringing salad to dinner tonight (after we invited ourselves over).

Dessert would be these little morsels:



The perfect apple for my dad, too. A little sour but not too firm. Otherwise it could prove to be the $20K apple if he bit into it wrong. Wouldn’t be the first time I cost him a lot of money.

August, summer is winding down. School starts in 18 days. We may find out tomorrow when Wally leaves. I’m sentimental already. And it looks like rain.

How idyllic! And boy, using up those cucumbers could result in a lot of household burping. Heehee! And I imagine there's only so much tzatziki one can make, too.

we clean out the seeds to eliminate the whole burping thing
