What's Growin' On: 7/23/06

Realization Of The Day:
Beauty and art are everywhere--even in a single onion.

So the greenhouse survived our putting it back together. What one of us thought was going to be an extremely quick and easy task ended up taking the entire day. But it almost looks like it did before the storm. And while we worked we had homemade wind thanks to the giant fan pointed down the greenhouse walkway--and no idea of just how hot it really was out there because the thermometer broke (melted?) at 120.6 degrees F.

From Garden To Table:
TOMATOES! My simple recipe for Summer In A Bowl is coming very soon.


  1. Gorgeous pic. I just yanked my onions and shallots the other day, I never grow enough onions to really make a difference, but I do it anyway. The shallots however are a good deal since they're almost $4 a pound at the store.

  2. Summer in a Bowl sounds intriguing. I can't wait...


March 2013 update: My apologies for the inconvenience - I know word verification is a pain - but I've had to turn it on to help stop the ridiculous number of anonymous spam comments I've been getting every day. Thanks for your understanding.

Welcome to! Thanks so much for taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love to hear about what's going on in your own garden. I know, too, that other readers also delight in reading about your garden successes, failures, helpful tips, and lessons learned. Feel free to leave comments on older posts!

I try my best to answer all questions, but sometimes it takes me a few days to get to them. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your visits to my kitchen garden!
