my garden looked like this..........
and now the black eyed peas that I planted have grown to be very healthy. They haven't started blooming yet, but it wont be long..........I hope!
My tomatoes have done well this year, but I am not giving them a chance to turn red............
they get plucked when they are still green and turned into a delicious plate of fried green tomatoes.
If you would like to make these for yourself, just wash and cut off ends of green tomatoes. Slice about a quarter inch thin....... roll them into a mixture of cornmeal and flour mixed together, dip them in buttermilk, and then roll them in the cornmeal and flour mixture again.
Fry them in a deep skillet of hot oil until golden. Drain and serve hot with a side dish of ranch dressing!
I had company the other day as I worked out on the grounds. This vulture and a few of his friends stopped by to take a look around.........
and I saw this from a distance
got closer to discover a Coach-whip snake coming out of it's hole.
It was as curious about me as I was it and I was able to get a good close up picture........
see the dirt still on it's head?
It is also a time of lots of zucchini on the vines, and time to make wonderful zucchini bread.
