We Miss Our Girl!

It is time to prepare the autumn garden. I planted kale, broccoli, Swiss chard, and more lettuce. In the meantime, harvesting is continuing. The bigger yellow tomatoes are turning and we have sliced and eaten quite a few now. What is unbelievable though, the Beefsteak tomatoes are large on the vine, but we have not enjoyed a ripe one yet. What are they waiting for? They are just starting to get a pinkish tinge on the top, so there is hope....

There is a cantaloupe getting bigger and a few smaller ones. Let this serve as a notice to any raccoons, let us have some this year!

A few new flowers in Cait's wildflower garden. A different colour poppy and Sweet Williams, also known as Pinks.


Cait is immersing herself in the Spanish language Mendoza, Argentina style. I made a meal in her honour tonight. I just have to give kudos to my garden for the tomatoes, onions, peppers, parsley, basil used and shown in the pictures.

Coke and Fernet, probably the 2nd favourite drink of Argentina after Yerba Mate'.

The lovely savory and sweet flavours that is Pionono.....I highly recommend this one.

I found the recipes for these delicious goodies at:

A wonderful blog packed with good information about Mendoza.
