Joy of the Season
We always schedule our dentist appointments as a block in the afternoon in a nearby town mostly so we can do it in just one trip but also to eat out at some places we don't normally eat at. This particular one we have eaten at a couple times in it's old location in town but it closed down and eventually reopened outside of town and closer to an orchard where it uses the fruits to make hard cider for the restaurant. So we stopped for a meal after our dental cleanings to pack all the nooks and crannies back in with delicious food. It was a nice day so we sat outside on the patio to enjoy the scene from above.
After several weeks of dry winds, everything was getting parched so it was nice to go down to the farm garden and see the above sight. There are no functioning rain gauges there anymore but I suspect it was close to two inches. Everything should shoot right up now in the summer heat.
Above is our second garden harvest of the season. Our first consisted of some peas and a single kohlrabi. This time we harvested what remained of the peas, some more kohlrabi and dug a hill of new potatoes.
Some of the sweet peas went into a pea risotto with scallops for lunch.
The rest along with the kohlrabi went into a summer salad that we ate later on for supper along with some old smoked pork chops we found in the bottom of our freezer during a cleaning session. Eating fresh veggies from the garden is always one of the biggest joys of this time of year.
