"You know, when you get your first asparagus, or your first acorn squash, or your first really good tomato of the season, those are the moments that define the cook's year. I get more excited by that than anything else." -
When I came home from vacation I was totally surprised at how much my veggie garden had grown. I had several huge cucumbers, one gigantic zucchini, a couple of peppers and about 9 baby cantaloupes that are fist size. My husband is eagerly awaiting the ripening of these bad boys. Last year I went with all heirloom tomatoes, this year I chose a mix. These are Jetsetter which the tag said are disease resistant. The plant is taller than my husband who is 6" 3"! Any day now right?
Back to the studio for me after over a week off. Of course I had the Headless Horseman on the brain again:) He's currently on Ebay.
The EHAG challenge for July is The Brother's Grimm. Hmmm... I'm thinking Hansel and Gretel maybe???
