it's been another few beautiful summer days - woohoo! i love these summer days in june! they are so good for the garden and everything is coming up gangbusters!
jambaloney was at work for the full day yesterday - he is really enjoying this job even more than he thought he would. this job is keeping him on his toes to say the least!
we've been working in the gardens - as everyone knows it's a daily job! today jam has been weeding the garden beds and weed-whacking the majority of our yard. i have planted more brassicas (radicchio, cabbage and turnip) and some more spinach.
here's our daily salad from the salad bar and our own fresh herbs. this time i threw in an unripe hungarian hot wax pepper - these babies are hot no matter what their colour!
if you don't have much land or live in an apartment, growing a few pots of various lettuces and herbs can really go a long way in regards to your health.
here's a mixed bean salad with our own radish, tons of fresh dill, tons of garlic - you know the drill! some fresh radish leaves and some pickled onions.
jam planted more garlic and cleaned out vandura. it's amazing how much crap vandura can hold. we moved the next round of tomatoe plants (12) to harden them off and will plant them in their tires (yes PP - i said tires) with stakes and then wrapping them in plastic. we also re-arranged the greenhouse and with all of the volunteer tomatoes (over 20!) - i have no idea where we are going to put them!!!
jam brought our 6-horsepower 1972 johnson outboard motor in to be serviced and the guys cleaned it up really good and it doesn't need any new parts - woohoo! we like the service we get here on the island - no one ever seems to be trying to rip you off - rather - they go out of their way to fix your stuff and try to save you money - it's awesome! anyway - he'll be picking that up on saturday along with another truckload of composted manure and then we'll be heading out on our guerrilla gardening trip on sunday - it's going to be so much fun!
here's a great supper of surf and turf - steak, lobster tail (we also nibbled on some legs - not pictured), fresh pineapple, grapes, more radish leaves and some sauteed in butter mushrooms - yummeh!
jam is getting ready to do his contract work, it's a beautiful evening and there will be many walks and hottub dips. then a netflix movie and early to bed!
tomorrow we'll plant out the next 12 tomatoes, planting a new round of beets and radish and some more brassicas. i love this time of year (except for the blackflies. dang rotten little ugly buggers!)
