July #6 - summer foods

Hello everyone 
Below is where I usually do my chopping and peeling, etc.  
I set everything up on the breakfast table and sit down to work because it does take me awhile.  
Sometimes I watch YouTube on an iPad while I work.  

Today- I made another batch of fresh salsa and cut up one cantaloupe.  
It was a bit green but it still tastes really good.  I will let the others ripen a couple days before I cut them.  

  All waiting in fridge until time to eat 

Supper was cornbread muffins,  canned pinto beans seasoned with onion, bell pepper and spicy tomato sauce, with fresh salsa to spoon on top.  It was really good! 

Below is what my husband harvested today - minus some onions he ate at lunch and jalapeรฑos I put in the salsa.  
He planted potatoes in tubs to hopefully harvest this fall.  

A few replies 
 Terri- I know it’s a lot of melon but we will share it with family and it will all get eaten fresh.  

Angela, yes- we like our air fryer.  I can cube up potatoes, spray them with olive oil and in 10 minutes,  they are browned, delicious  and a very easy no fuss side dish.  
  Yesterday,  my 3 grands got school sack lunches and the entree was a chicken patty and bun.  I put the patties in the air fryer and they were ready to eat in 5 minutes.  
  I use the air fryer almost daily.

  1. You had a really nice harvest! We planted a little later than we should have but things other than the zucchini are starting to produce. Hooray! I have been trying to use all the zucchini but am finding it is hard to keep up with the amount we are getting.

  2. That is a lot of nice food you grew. I use cantaloupe to make smoothies for Tommy. I like banana and strawberries in smoothies. He hates banana but loves the cantaloupe strawberry smoothie i make for him. I hate cantaloupe but it was my mother's favorite fruit/vegetable.

  3. We are almost ready to pick tomatoes, Hubs picked and cut onion tops yesterday.

  4. You sure have a nice veggie harvest already! We have cherry tomato plants in tubs and they are just now starting to ripen. We didn't plant anything else this year as we lack sunlight on our property. We're surrounded by trees.

  5. Lots of green tomatoes here. I'm hoping to keep the rabbits out of them so I can pick them when they ripen. SO many bunnies! They've been eating my pepper plants, so when I found a snake skin in the yard, I put it in the garden bed by the pepper plants. I'd seen a rabbit avoid it in the yard, so I'm hoping that does the trick.
    I, too, sit at my table when I have to process a large quantity of produce. Glad to see I'm not alone!

  6. That melon looks so good, beautiful harvest.

  7. I am so jealous of those tomatoes. Mine are still several weeks away from being ripe
    I love fresh salsa and could make a meal off of salsa and chips. Enjoy your fruits and veggies.

  8. Glad you got to see the grandkids.

    Yummy muskmelon---I LOVE it!
