    We made a taco salad with the tomatoes I’ve had ripen already. a couple Roma, Big Boys, and some cherry tomatoes. They were delicious.

    A mouse stole a little red pepper from on top of the toaster oven, and carried it to the back of the cooktop, but only took one or two bites.

    That’s going to be one tiny little Ring of Fire.

    There’s already a naked lady in my garden!

    aka resurrection lily, surprise lily, August lily – I’ve never seen them bloom so early.

    Been away from the garden for three days, tomatoes are doing super.

    Zucchini are going away, peppers just sitting there, I may set the central ohio record for sweet potatoes later on. So much garden work needed now to plant for fall.

    My onion harvest was rather modest. But I have a nice assortment of peppers and tomatoes beginning to ripen.

    The goldfinches have learned to hang upside-down and pick the seeds out of the nodding sunflower. Cute little white butts.

    The watering cans on the garage floor get tangled in the hose every time it goes by, and it’s a damned annoyance. So I put them in the recycling tub to frighten them, and they get real quiet real fast.

    Finally, red!

    Sure seems like the tomatoes took their time turning red for me this year.

    I’ve been picking reds for a while, but nothing that size.

    I need a sonar rig to see submarine-sized objects through the zucchini leaves.

    My squash and zuccihini done well until the heat wave.

    But we are gonna have a bumper crop of Habanero’s this year.

    I have read that all the hot weather means more alkaloids and a hotter pepper.

    I’ve got Kohl Rabi ready to go. Going to try to boil it and mash it.

    Hah, I have pineapple/hab sauce in the fridge.

    I’ve made many hab sauces over the years with various thick bases. I’ve used carrot juice, and/or onions, or pineapple, or yellow winter squash. I placed second in the North Market hot sauce contest with a hab sauce thickened with rasins and prunes. Could have gone into tamarind with that one.

    One thing I haven’t tried could be based on the “salsa” at Los Guachos – chunky red onion and orange habanero. What do you get when you combine orange and red..?

    this might be my favorite thread on all of CU. quick question for you folks: i had to cut and toss my basil plants last month due to what i suspect is fusarium wilt. can anyone confirm for me? i cloned a friend’s plant and am trying to figure out if i can put it in one of the containers i used for the infected plants.
