I'm just pleased things are much better this year after last years evac & garden losses. Rick got a first hand look at the wildfire devastation all around here from the airplane. He said it was as far as the eye could see in every direction....it rather shocked him just how damn close it came!!!

"Split the strawberry for dessert"--so funny! Isn't it nice to have somebody around to split it with?! Hurray for Rick (and you).

I didn't grow cauliflower this year as I seldom have much luck. B. sprouts to well, however. And, I have 7 cabbages to deal with. Yikes! 

Just picked some wild blackberries at my secret place next to a cemetery. Stained my shorts, got stuck (thorns), and probably got poison ivy, but it was worth it!.

Then, when I got home (from golf), I harvested rhubarb and gooseberries to combine in a pie this afternoon. Never tried that combination before, so we'll see.

Patricia, Im very happy it went well with Rick!  Im amazed at how well medical procedures can go, when they go well!  I would be like him, direct into to garden!

Those veggies are awesome!  I want to figure out a better system to grow cauliflower and cabbage, without cabbage moths.  Maybe the Brussrls sprouts will fill that gap - looking good do far.

Out to water now.  Hot and dry this week!

We had the broccoli with supper, split the strawberry for ''dessert'',

Blanched & froze the beans, will also freeze peas, & cauliflower will go for supper tomorrow. Soooooo good!

Rick, these look wonderful! Plump, freshly picked, ready to go in salads, as side dishes, or for preserving. They are beautiful specimens of broccoli, beans, peas, cauliflower, & strawberry.

Randy, remember when Daniel said he liked the mineral-rich soil the moles bring to the surface. When I see a new, and one of many mole holes, I think of Daniel and mineral-rich soil.

Neat photos, Daniel! The tigridia is beautiful.

My sweet corn stand looks much better. It was worth the effort.

Saw evidence of my first mole of the year. Set a spring-loaded trap and caught him in one day! That never happens. I also "caught" a cardinal in a cage trap. Poor thing was frantic.

Daniel, I have not heard "terroir." before. Sounds like a word used for the wine fields of France or along the Columbia River. It is hard to pronounce at first; I listened several times to get the tone and temper right. 

Larry's daughter is a college professor in France and when she and her family come for a visit we get to hear those beautiful sounds and words. 

I love your deer garden! I hope to attract in more deer and I am sure if I have the energy to plant a vegetable garden outside the greenhouse they will come. I also enjoy watching the rabbits hop around and eat their fill. They reproduce so quickly, I will probably get a fence to keep them out. They haven't gotten to that point yet. 

I looked up Tigridias on Dave's Garden site & here is what I found: 

"On Aug 5, 2012, harrryr from Shoreline, WA wrote:

I live in Seattle Washington and planted my tigridia about three years ago. The first couple of years it had a few blooms that were tri-petal cream color. This year it has multiple blooms that are are six petal, 3 yellow and 3 orange with yellow accents. The flower lasts one day so it must be tigridia, it seems unusual. I will have about a month of blooms when all the pods have been expended. It is a real conversation piece for my yard."

So kind of you to provide such a buffet.
