|The Crows watch over the plums|
Inspite of one brief rain, I/ we (with our dear neighbor and friends help) continue to produce food. Daily tomatoes ripen of the smaller varieties. My climbing cherry on the patio gives us enough tomatoes for the two of us for salad daily. All sorts of greens and lettuces fill our bowls and stomachs. Onions are braided in the pantry (I must get a photo), and garlic braid hangs next to the stove. I keep flat leaf parsley and chives on the patio too. Asian eggplant and strawberries were picked yesterday.

|Mesculin mix that is no mix...but tasty|
|We left one onion so we could see the pretty bloom.|
|more lettuce...salads abound!|
|Manzano plum tomatoes...I think that's their name.|
|After freezing tomatoes slip out of their skins...easy.|
|Green chili stew...mmmmm|
