Mmm, summer

Baco, lettuce and tomato sandwiches. Fresh corn on the cob dripping with butter. Watermelon. It's summer in Ohio.

The mothball idea worked well at deterring the deer, but we discovered that rain and the sprinkler system melts the moth balls, so those had to be replaced. Denny's sister had put a net bag of moth balls on each tomato stake, so we're thinking that perhaps they should be moved to the string fence that surrounds the garden instead, as the sprinkler system wouldn't wet them then.

FIL says that after the full moon (the 29th) the tomatoes will ripen "just like that". We're ready.

Heigh ho, heigh ho, it's off to the estate sale we go....

I too love the fruits of this season. So far I have been enjoying lettuce, peas, green onions and radishes. Just this morning I noticed a cucumber that is pretty close to picking size. My tomatoes hold a lot of promise but I doubt that we will be eating any for a while yet. But my peppers.. they look great.
