Goodbye June, hello July

With a third of the summer already gone, winter doesn't feel so very far away. There's a lot of good things happening in the garden, lots of blooms and herbs, but the cherry-type tomatoes have another couple weeks to go before they're ready. Weather forecasts say hot, hot, hot beginnng tomorrow as winds from Africa will reach the peninsula. It won't affect us too much at our altitude, but I'm making a lot of ice for Campari cocktails!


Rhubarb-strawberry tart
I only ever get a tiny yield from my rhubarb but added together with strawberry and it makes a delicious tart.


  1. glad your garden is doing well. too wet this year for us, plus I think my seeds are old :(

    1. I had the same problem with old bean seeds this year. Nothing happened, so put in some cuke seedlings from the nursery. This summer is the opposite of last year's wet and cool conditions. Hope next year will be better for you!
