hustle mickey trust me

rock and roll is dead i probably shoulda stayed in school

Little blossoms and little green tomatoes are growing on the Cherokee Purple, the Black Klim, the Green Zebra, and the Amish Paste tomato plants, and the Reisentraube has bunches of promising flowers. The peas are over and the broccoli went to flower while I was away (alack!) but the carrots and squash are just coming into their own, and the cucumbers are tiny and cute. Also, I just brewed my first cup of tea with the black peppermint and lemon balm, and the parsley and dill went into last night's bouillabaisse.

I have about four corn plants--that's all that made it. Better luck next year, but I will hand-pollinate them and see if I get anything.

Mmm. Bouillabaisse.

I need to put in more peas, and the second crop of carrots (I have multicolor carrots!), and the mesclun. Wheee!

Also, the pear trees are just covered. I hope the birds leave me a few.


Bouillabaisse. is. love. Love with a thick, garlic-hammer rouille. What fish do you use?

My bouillabaisse is rouille-free, and varies by what's available. This one had tilapia, shrimp, salmon, and trout. And there's more in the freezer!
varies by what's available

As it should be. My dad got me into rouille, and I succumbed to her charms most completely. The local bistro makes theirs with newspaper-thin slices of fennel, but you have to shout for rouille. Sometimes loudly.
We pretty much get through October, so I have hopes for some good cool-weather crops. Yum!
(a) Crows love corn seed. (b) Squirrels love ripening corn. Best of luck - maybe the GRD will keep the marauders off!

I am off to the farmer's market to see if the pickling cucumbers are ready. *crosses fingers*
Did you ever get any radishes?
You are very welcome, and thank you for reading!
Pear trees. I'm jealous!
