The cucs are in, as well as tomatoes, avocados, peaches, figs are a few weeks off, herbs, onions and garlic.  It has been in the upper 90's for the past week, not much June gloom here, the weatherman says that it should cool to low 90's next week!  TPW has been making pickles with the cucs, pretty tasty.  The loquats are gone, I was amazed by how many people said, I love those things but can't find them anywhere. 

Last years tomatoes with this years onions, garlic, and basil, TPW turned this into a killer sauce.

Salad for two.

TPW's black gold compost.  We can usually get 2-3 loads throughout the summer.

This is the chrylsalis of the Giant Swallowtail butterfly that I found on one of our orange trees, see last weeks post.  The boys have been taking good care of it, the perfect pet.  However, when it comes time to release this guy I think we'll drive him down the road.

This pumpkin was a volunteer with the compost, it has taken over the bean, pepper and cuc bed

Lions tail, Leonotus leonurur

First cactus flower of the summer.

  1. I sure hope your cool weather is coming our way soon. We have been 100 plus for a week. They say we will be back into the high 80's on Thursday. I'm sure looking forward to that!!
