U-pick flowers. 🌼🌻🌸

I love any excuse to use this beautiful piece of pottery.
Tomatoes, mango, onion, garlic, sea salt, lime juice, cilantro, & a dollop of freshly roasted New Mexico Hatch green chile that I just whizzed in the blender. πŸ…πŸŒΆπŸ”₯
First bloom! 🌺
Probably lost 50% of everything this summer as we had 16+" of rain in a month which caused standing water and wet ground for weeks. It took out both seeds and transplants. It happens. Now is the time for taking stock, checking what worked and what didn't, writing notes on all the packets for next time, figuring out last plantings for fall for pots and home garden. Seeing what I have left for cold storage for next year! 🌿🌱 Now is also the time to start the hydroponics planning, so things will be harvested starting in October! πŸ’š

The chickens got to 2 melons. 😭 Tucked the rest far back and under hoping they won't reach them. Crossing fingers!! 🍈 πŸ‰
Look who I keep chasing out of the tomatoes. The very, very holey pecked and eaten by chickens tomatoes. πŸ…πŸ“πŸ‘€
