Our August sunrises are glorious.
Lots of harvesting happening here, with the fourth large batch of marionberries headed for the freezer and daily picking of tomatoes, peppers, and more. The below tomatoes include Black Krim and lots of yummy cherries. The pale yellow ones are new this year to me and are called Barry’s Crazy Cherries. If you didn’t know that you can freeze cherry tomatoes to use later in sauces, soups, and stews, now you do! I’ve been busy picking and stowing away gallon bags of Sungold and Sweet Million. Tonight’s dinner includes slow- roasted Stupice tomatoes over pasta. It’s most definitely tomato time at Coppertop.
Fruits and veggies just might be outdone by the wonderful flowers I’ve been picking. These bouquets are a few of the many that have filled our home this past month. The dahlias are outrageous right now, and the colors and varieties of shapes keep me in awe. It doesn’t seem to matter that I’m most definitely not a flower arranger with these beauties; they provide all the necessary magic.
