In spite of the heat I've returned to the outdoors to find things to share on my blog. Of course, with the heat come the vegetables from the garden. As you can see our harvest this year is pretty BIG!
Here's the first picking this morning.
Then my second venture into the garden and . . .
Okay, now I'm a little worried when I go back late in the afternoon, and I have every right to be.

Ode to Squash
Just as Alice Waters would say,
If she were with me today,
There should be a "Song of Squash,"
A song that sings of bountiful vines .
A song that sings of fruit green and white
That explode with flavor at each bite.
A song that calls neighbors near, to say
Please come and take a squash away.
Care to write a better ode? Please! There's a prize. Can you guess what it might be?
