Zucchini with Male Flowers

Yesterday, I saw my first male flowers on my zucchini plants.  Aren’t they just lovely?  A close-up: This morning, I found THIS: So, it appears the squirrels know what’s up on The Veranda.  I was fairly sure this would happen, but kept hoping they would stick to the flourishing community garden down below and leave my little patch […]

The Veranda View

Roast Beef Sandwich

  I  rarely buy cold cuts, mainly because I can’t eat them fast enough, but on a whim I got some thinly-sliced roast beef from Fresh Direct.  I decided to  spice  it up a bit and put a little  kick  in the pants of the old run-of-the-mill beefy ‘wich, by making a delicious lemon and […]
