But that post was delayed today because my dear Grenville went into garden despite the sweltering and continuing heat and humidity Yes, friends we still have the HOT temps and no rain in sight.
Today’s harvest included green beans, cukes and zukes (again), beets, green peppers and tomatoes (only a couple of each, but more coming SOON), red onions, and yellow squash.Current conditions as of 3:00 PM EDTFair - 96° feels Like: 106 °F (heat index)

So the post on that adventure will be delayed a bit as this morning was devoted to salad making which used up some – but not all the veggies. So, we’re fairly well set for salads for a few days: tri-color pasta salad, green bean and kidney bean salad, sour cream cucumbers, and tomato salad (new one today).
Previous blogs have included ingredients for 3 out of these 4 salads, so I won’t repeat the making. The tomato salad is the only new one and is so easy: cut up tomatoes, green pepper, onion and mix with fresh chopped bail (if available), oregano, salt and pepper , olive oil and red wine vinegar.
F&P Note: Tomatoes have never heard that too much sodium is bad, and really like salt, which seems to bring out the taste. Check the salad before serving and salt to your preference.
