Cowboy Candy

How did I not know about these?  I read about them on a blog and ended up spending some time with Google sorting out a recipe.  It all starts with sliced jalapenos.

 

I cooked them in a vinegar sugar syrup, put them in jars, and processed them.

 

Here's one ready for sampling.

We've been adding them to grilled cheese sandwiches.  Just a couple, they are powerful.  I can't wait to try these lovelies over cream cheese with their sweet spicy syrup.

Okra Happens

This is what happens when you go away and leave your okra unpicked for a few days.

 

Those grocery bags are overflowing.  And if that isn't enough, there's still more out in the garden

 

 

Later at night, this little guy came to visit.

 

He was croaking up a storm.

Blue Labryinth

From the Goodreads website:  "A long-buried family secret has come back to haunt Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast...

It begins with murder. One of Pendergast's most implacable, most feared enemies is found on his doorstep, dead. Pendergast has no idea who is responsible for the killing, or why the body was brought to his home. The mystery has all the hallmarks of the perfect crime, save for an enigmatic clue: a piece of turquoise lodged in the stomach of the deceased.

The gem leads Pendergast to an abandoned mine on the shore of California's Salton Sea, which in turn propels him on a journey of discovery deep into his own family's sinister past. 

But Pendergast learns there is more at work than a ghastly episode of family history: he is being stalked by a subtle killer bent on vengeance over an ancient transgression. And he soon becomes caught in a wickedly clever plot, which leaves him stricken in mind and body, and propels him toward a reckoning beyond anything he could ever have imagined..."

This is the 14th book in this series!  Where have I been?  Clearly not reading this series and it's also clear to me I have a lot of catch up to do.

Artichokes

It's really happening.  After fighting rabbits, deer, and who knows what other critters, I have an artichoke.

I'll let it bloom instead of eating it.  

 

I'm also very happy with the sunflowers.  We will be planting even more of them next year.  

 

 

And cosmos too, I think.
