Sunflower Harvest

SunflowersSunflowers1Sunflower HarvestWe had a big rain and they started leaning on our garden fence so we took them all down.  Some for display, some for seed saving and some for our chickens.  They are eating well this Summer.

Woodstock For Chefs

Berries BrisketPeaches Succotash Squash PimentoThe annual event that we manage for a friend ended this morning.  I went through the photos on my camera and found that I was probably busier than I realized this year.  I think I just grabbed my camera on occasion for some photos in the kitchen pavillion.  Fried pies for breakfast, brisket, some fresh ingredients and a slab of pimento cheese.  Three days of amazing food, wine & music.  I’m tired.

If You’re Ever In NYC

EdsWe were last weekend and ate at Ed’s Lobster Bar in lower Manhattan.  The lobster roll is epic and worth the trip!

A Frequent Dinner Guest

BunnyThis little sweetheart joins us for dinner every evening.  We sit out on the back deck watching Food Network shows while we enjoy our meal and she comes right up to the edge of our deck behind our chairs to munch clover in the yard.  I think she has a crush on Bobby Flay.  :-)


GloriesAlong with sunflowers, we planted morning glories and moonflowers this year in pots from seed.  This will happen annually from now on.

Tomatoes Are In

Tomatoes Tomatoes RoastedFor the past week I’ve been roasting  tomatoes, canning them, serving BLTs and making tomato pies.  The roasted ones are done with a sprinkle of olive oil and salt.  Once they’re cooled, they go in a quart zip loc bag and right into the freezer.  I think salsa is next on my to-do list.
