There has been enough rain that I've not had to water any of the trees we planted in January. And there is a great bumper crop of greens!! Not only do we eat salad and sauteed greens several times a week, but I've also provided a monstrous salad to feed about 25 people - Twice!
The tomato plants aren't too happy with all the rain we've been getting. They're usually hip-high & in bloom by now. I just pray we don't get a sudden monstrous heat wave Southeast Texas is known for that kills them before we even have a chance to put up a batch or ten of Pasta Sawce. . .
However. There. Will. Be. Squash.
So much squash that after Princess #2 reported 85 blossoms, she stated, "Well, I guess it's time for me to learn to really like squash. . . "
And oh, the figs! How I love figs!! The branches are just loaded this year - I can't wait to breakfast on Greek yogurt, fresh figs & local honey. Then I'll make a Fresh Fig Tart with Rosemary Cornmeal Crust and Lemon Mascarpone Cream. Maybe a batch or two of homemade Italian Fig Cookies. And, of course, there'll be Fresh Fig Ice Cream. . .
That is, if I don't eat them all before they make into the mixing bowl. . .
