No Hard Cider This Year

We've had a bumper crop of apples on our trees this year, but...

The news has gone viral on deer social media and several does have been devouring all the drops. For the last two days we've also had a nice four-point buck join them. Unfortunately, he's pretty skiddish, so these are the best shots I've been able to grab with a crappy cellphone camera. If he comes back, I'll try to get some better pics with a telephoto lens on a real camera.

STAY TUNED!

Great Night For Q

It was such a lovely afternoon that I decided to break out the old smoker & kick back on the garden patio while waiting for our peeps to check-in. In addition to a dry-rubbed pork loin, I threw some fresh-picked garden peppers in the smoker. Not having done this before, I wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. After three hours time, they came out soft, juicy & lightly smoked. Served on crusty bread with Ploughgate Creamery cultured butter, they were a perfect complement to the pork.

Fresh Herbs...Great Cocktails!

Here's a nifty little tip you can try out this afternoon (after 5 o'clock of course...).

If you have some herbs in your garden going to flower, there's an alternate use for those lovely little blossoms. Instead of making an aromatic bouquet or simply tossing them out, use them in your favorite cocktail! Muddled, shaken or stirred they provide a burst of aroma & flavor more intense than the herb's leaves. Mint & basil blossoms go particularly well with gin, vodka & white rum. So go ahead & experiment with your favorites. End the work week on a pleasant note...

ENJOY THE WEEKEND & CHEERS!
