|Deb S. - Basket Weave Quilt|
Ugh, July in Texas! Everything is dying in this heat. At least there are pretty quilts to look at. Deb S. sent in these beauties all finished. Thank you Deb!

My parents' garden is flush with okra, purple hull peas, cucumbers, tomatoes, cantaloupes, and the watermelons are coming along. Peas cooked with ham, salted fresh sliced tomato, and cucumbers sliced in vinegar are the definition of summer food for me.

We have to wait until the sun starts to set to pick things in the garden. We get a bucket every day and have to shell peas nightly. I'm again becoming the person so brings a grocery bag of cucumbers everywhere I go trying to get rid of them.

A full garden in the one upside of these hot hot summer days. I know not everyone has room or time to have a large garden but even in the leanest years we have had a couple of tomato plants in buckets. I hope you are getting some veggies and some dirt on your hands!
