Hi all. Thank you so much for your kind words in regards to my previous post. I was really relieved to hear that Selina from Vegans Rock didn’t become ill from the hummus. I am feeling much better now. I was sick that first week in July. We went to Taste on a Saturday and I became sick that Monday. We didn’t do anything for the the 4th because I wasn’t feeling good. At least I know what made me ill.
I also have some disheartening news to report about my community garden plot – produce theft! My garden plot neighbor lives near the community garden and took a walk just as it was getting dark. He walked by the garden and noticed someone on his plot. He went over to investigate and discovered a woman on his plot and a guy on our plot. He asked them what they were doing and they tried to say that our plot belonged to them. My garden neighbor said that was impossible because both plots were his and they ran! He called the police and gave him a description of the couple and the car they were in. When they ran, they dropped one of the bags of stolen produce.
I really appreciate that my garden neighbor went to investigate. Although those bastards took quite a bit of my (green) tomatoes, he caught them before they had a chance to take my special heirloom tomatoes I’m growing. My poor garden neighbor though, they took all of his eggplants and a lot of his cucumbers and other veggies. The woman who has the plot behind us had all of her cherry tomato plants stripped. We’re not sure how many plots were affected. The police said they will be driving past the park more at night.
I finally uploaded some of my garden bounty pics. I’ve picked much more than what I’ve photographed. The yellow ball squash are coming in like crazy. Yay! I was especially pleased because I grew the plants from seed. I’m lucky I got a picture of the pickling cukes. They are my favorites and normally don’t last long enough to be photographed. LOL
And I used half of this zucchini to make a zucchini bread:
This recipe for Zucchini Bread makes two loaves so I just cut the recipe in half. I added just a little bit more flour so the bread was sturdier/denser. The bread was fantastic.
I’ll be visiting and commenting on blogs this weekend. Hope you have a wonderful day!!! 😀
