Archive for July, 2011

Many thanks to our friends who own a condo in Ocean City, MD for inviting us to spend the weekend with them. Outside of a drive from Baltimore that took 5 hours due to major storms, the weekend was uneventul. We enjoyed some French Press coffee with an ocean view (yes, I actually brought my grinder), spotted some dolphins, broiled some steak, and basked with our newfound tans, I mean sunburn. Hopefully I’ll get in some fishing next time around.

As we trudge through this hot and humid summer, I thought I would post updates on our attempts at container gardening.  Although we only have a few and would have surely starved to death by now, there is something empowering about being someone with no green thumb, yet growing food.  Hopefully one day we can transition from containers to an actual garden.  I haven’t been able to harvest anything yet, but hopefully in the next week.

Romas

You guessed it, these are Roma Tomatos from which I hope to make salsa with.  Unfortunately, I’ve thrown many away due to a type of rot at the base.  I can’t seem to get it to stop.

Tarragon with some Dill in the back.  The Dill is doing really good.

Rosemary, which I love to describe as Christmas in July.  I actually cut off a fairly large portion of it and this is what was left over.  Yummy!

Mystery hot pepper.  I’ve managed to pick off one red one which had a wonderful spicy sweet taste.  They’re hot green too, but just taste…well…green.

The habeneros.  So excited about these as I plan to make my first attempt at pickling with them.

Mystery tomatos given to me by my neighbors, any ideas?
