Dahlia update: happy that these 2 dahlias turned out the way they're supposed to (as depicted on the description image). They stand out so boldly with their dual colors.
The garden continues to chug along with cucumbers, green beans, and some cherry tomatoes here and there. It's amazing how it all adds up when you pick a little bit every day, enough anyway so that there's always one hot and one cold vegetable dish for dinner.
Cucumber, okra, red bell pepper "Quadrato", and from Esselunga market - Melanzana Rossa di Rotonda, a small, round, reddish-orange eggplant with a protected designation of origin (DOP) label.
Todays high: 27°C / 81°F
