July Already?

I’m having trouble believing that July is just two days away. Anyone else having the same problem?

So far this year, our deck and container gardens are doing well. I have tiny little cucumbers starting to come on and the tomatoes are about to blossom. Oregano is about to take over the deck, so I think it’s time to snip it back and put it in the dehydrator for wintertime use.

And the rosemary is thriving, in spite of the wet weather we’ve been having. Even the thyme, which I’ve had major trouble with before, is doing well, and the cutting I took from it has rooted and started to grow.

I have finally recovered to the point of being able to add a little bit of meat or cheese to my diet a few times a week and have discovered a new way to fix green beans.

Saute up a little onion and and garlic until transparent. Add the green beans and steam until tender. I add a little pepper or lemon, but season with your favorites and toss. Serve up and top with a sprinkle of feta cheese crumbles and you have a delightful side dish, or if you’re like me and love green beans, a nice main dish. Serve with sliced tomatoes and fresh cucumbers and you’re set.

Anyway, I’m hoping the beans do well. They’re up and growing nicely in their space out back. I’ve been encouraging them each time I go past. I know. I’m weird.

Wishing you a wonderful new month of healthy living!
