Miscellany

A tired day, rained a bit earlier and now too hot steamy for me to want to be outside.

Onion update: not a plant was lost, all are thriving.

Picking strawberries every day-


Made a strawberry shortcake ( pic pre- whipped cream)-


Trent got a new haircut, reminiscent of the 90's-


The giant alliums bloomed, wish I had more of these-


And the poppies in the bottle tree garden came back :-)~


Still cutting asparagus and planning to harvest mustard greens any day now.

I've starting noticing butterflies, always a welcome sight.

Even though I feel downright crappy, I have the most beautiful view from my window.

That haircut kicks ASS and is indeed giving me 90s flashbacks 🙃

Your strawberry shortcake looks incredible! Yum.

Glad the butterflies are back 🦋

Wow - those alliums are much larger than mine. I haven’t seen any asparagus yet, or strawberries. My rhubarb is growing well though.

I have seen them better in other years. The seed heads dry well and I stick them around the house.

Our rhubarb died and I haven't replaced it :(

Wow! I didn’t know you could kill a rhubarb. LOL we had it along a fence in my parent’s yard and every year my dad tried to eliminate it because we didn’t use and it would always come back. Too bad I wasn’t an adventurous cook as a kid because I like rhubarb now. I have only a handful of recipes that I make with it, all a variation of cake or muffin.

Wow, just how big are those alliums?

About 7 inches in diameter, have been bigger in other years.

I remember boys with that haircut when I was in high school. 90s retro...that's a thing.

And that shortcake puts me in the mood for strawberries.

The strawberries are good this year and they just keep on coming.

Hot and steamy = no hard work today.

That looks like a yummy strawberry shortbread, though!

Pretty giant alliums and poppies! Always magical when the butterflies come back, too :)

And cool hair cut!

It is very pretty outside right now. I get out in the morning before it gets hot. The sun makes me sick.

Thinned carrots this morning but no more work today.

I go out in the cool mornings before it gets too hot, too :)

Good to see you're sensible in the heat :)

Strawberries are just starting to really come in here. I need to get motivated and make some jam.

I put 3 quarts in the freezer today, it has been a good season for them here.
