Ah, the joys of not having to go into work. Having paid vacation is nice. Five days in a row. And in just 4 weeks I'm going to have 6 days off. This is almost like working part-time... oh, hell, who do I think I'm kidding. This isn't even close to working part-time hours.
Those weather guys, who can never seem to get their predictions right, are forecasting rain and thunderstorms today, and then some cooler temps for the rest of the week. By cooler, I mean high 80's (F) and low 90's (F). These temps are what would be considered normal for July. Of course, we all know how inaccurate those weather guys can be.
I harvested my first eggplant, not so much because I was desperately hungry, but because it was resting on the ground and I didn't want a bunch of little critters making it into a meal. The plant is for me, not them. It's almost a foot long, but narrow. Think how tasty this will be sautéed with a little olive oil. Yummy.
