Every year right after the solstice we get our bumper crop of raspberries.  This year was no different and since we were away nobody was here to pick the early ones.  So last night we took almost two pints of berries.  Segundo shows off the haul.

Raspberries been Berry, Berry good to me!

We even had enough to garnish a capirihna.


We had our second batch of squash blossoms, too, but nobody remembered the camera until they were gone.

We returned from our week in Colorado to discover our garden had been swallowed up by alien beings.  Or zucchini, maybe.  Had our first fried blossoms the night we got back and more are scheduled for tonight.

A big day.  We harvested our first produce that wasn’t lettuce or herbs.  We roasted them in foil in the outdoor oven (i.e. the gas grill) and had them in salad.  Sweet as candy.

NJ has been cleared as being the source of salmonella in the recent outbreak.  We’re not surprised.  Our tomatoes are superior.

The first time we saw the house there was a small clump of these poppies blooming.  The clump is much larger now.
