When I look at our lavender bushes I pretend that I'm in Provence. A little bit of goat cheese, white wine, some olives, bread...how easy it is to create an entirely different world in your head with a few key ingredients!
The month of June has yielded a little bit of this and a little bit of that, but as soon as July's heat kicks in, I expect to have more photos for TGIF. The first few weeks of the month were cloudy with steady bouts of rain, averaging 55-60°F temps at midday. Not good for the buzzing pollination team so if I am certain that a female flower hasn't been pollinated (there were only females at one point), I cut off the young zukes and use them in a saute. I haven't even harvested a kilo of zucchini yet although the markets have been flooded with them.
Striped zucchini, snowpeas, shiso and peppermint.
