It's that time of year. The time where one of The Mister's old work friends goes on vacation and tells up to go pick whatever we want out of his garden while he is gone. It is a big garden.
The whole back row is nothing but sunflowers. It's quite spectacular. He said to pick all I wanted but the cats would just make mischief with them in the house and I don't want to draw birds or squirrels into my cat infested yard so I let them be.
It was a pretty good haul. His beds are a weedy mess but the plants look so much healthier and happier than my poor things in their sad little buckets.
This is the second cherry tomato harvest from my plants. I did harvest three nice green peppers which became some sweet and sour tofu the other night.
Everything got a good wash and a good chop. Since I've been on my own all weekend I made myself......
......a giant pot of ratatouille. The Mister is away with SIL to play in a golf tournament in Pennsylvania.
My favorite part of the big harvest are the green tomatoes. I always get a couple.
Fried green tomatoes anyone? This air fryer just showed up from Amazon and I'm going to give it a try. It's not summer without at least one plateful.
