Summertime in the PNW is amazing, really it is. Our garden is living proof. Photo on the left, fence just built to keep the critters on the right...after only 3 months of sunshine and a little rain. We have pumpkins, potatoes, corn, mint, thyme, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, zuchini, artichokes, snap peas, catnip, peppermint, chives, basil.....and next up on the planting list is carrots. The tomatoes went crazy....there are about 15 on each sprig.  Fried green tomatoes anyone? They're SO delicious! Or how about some stuffed squash blossoms? with fresh herbs and ricotta cheese?...

still can't get enough green. I just might know people by name at both Home Depot and Lowes. I need a manicure bad! But like that will ever happen, my poor hands.
