Wordless Wednesday: July

2013 July 24

July in my yard.

Not entirely wordless, but less wordy than normal.

ww-basil-garden

Basil garden, which makes lots of …

… basil pesto


Cucumber seedlings

Dew on the grass

ww-alma-paprika

Alma paprika peppers – they start out white and ripen to a deep red.

ww-baby-summer-lettuce

Lettuce growing outdoors in July in the Midwest? Believe it. It’s happening.

ww-black-cherries

My beloved black cherry tomatoes, ripening one tortuous tomato at a time.

ww-dill-flowers

From beautiful dill blooms one week …

ww-dill-seed

… to dill seed the next. Pickles, anyone?

ww-flat-leaf-parsley

Flat leaf parsley

ww-ginger

Ginger – tall and lush

ww-jimmy-nardellos

Jimmy Nardello frying peppers – let ripen to red and grill them up, so sweet and delicious

ww-sweet-onions

Next crop of sweet onions, ready to pull and cure

ww-sweet-pea-currant

The darling sweet pea currant tomato – teeny tiny tomatoes about the size of your fingertip; deep, sweet tomato flavor. It volunteers every year, and moved all the way around to my front yard this year.

ww-black-eyed-susan

Another favorite volunteer. Last year, a tiny black-eyed Susan grew under one of my apple trees (it’s still there, although a deer clipped it early on). This year, a huge plant sprung up behind my black raspberries. Nature has to have her fun.
