Hi all! Hope you had a lovely weekend. The weather here has been fantastic...hot, but not that crazy Sacramento heat that we've been known to get in the summers here. Which means, lots of time outdoors. The garden is growing and growing...some things doing great, some not so great...
cucumbers and tomatoes - these seem to be thriving! producing a lot and they're tasty too!
in typical zucchini fashion, these are growing too...sometimes too quickly as can be seen from the extra large zucchini below. oops, guess I didn't get out there fast enough!
Unfortunately though my corn has been infested with ants. No idea this could even be a problem?? But oh yes, it is. Weird thing is they are only on the corn. The zucchini and cucumber are in the same raised bed and are untouched. So on the task list this week is remove the corn. It's just icky.
One of my favorite things to do on a summer evening is go swimming, grill some food and eat dinner outside. Here's our latest outdoor meal. And no, that corn is not from my infested garden. Thank you Trader Joe's. And thank you for the mango pineapple salsa too. Perfect on grilled halibut! Don't you just love Trader Joe's?
Our little man enjoying dinner...almost right....
Happy Monday everyone!
