    Scrumptious! Enjoy the weekend Norma - I believe the troops are arriving!

    Welcome, Candice! I'm from Florida, too, and Norma helped me out a couple of years ago when I was having trouble with my eggplants. Who knew that really humid weather kept them from pollinating. Oh, Norma, that's who. A paint brush to the rescue and I was golden! Unfortunately, I've found out that nightshades (90% of my summer garden) inflame the pain in my hands. Being a knitter and a spinner means I had to cut them out... :-( Flowers and herbs are all I'm cultivating now but will put in a small salad garden this fall. Carrots, lettuces and greens go in next month. Here you go, Candice, a reliable resource at UF--

    Me, too, on the pears.......any recipe suggestions for the 300 or so I'm seeing on my 2 trees??? I'm planning to try pear butter, made in the crock pot, but if you have any other ideas, I'd love to hear them!

    Ellen, 


    Pear-ginger jam!  That was actually the reason I originally planted pear trees! 


    I (thankfully) blogged about it once, so I was able to find the recipe I loved:  http://www.cyber-kitchen.com/ubbs/archive/JAMSandJELLIES/Peach_Ginger_Jam.html

    You're lucky! Our garden drowned in all that rain.
    Pear Ginger Jam sounds wonderful...

    Color me jealous! I've had a terrible garden year. Living vicariously, as usual.

    Your garden looks amazing. I wish I had a garden even 10% as productive.

    I am hoping for a garden this winter. I may have to get some of those black things.

    Your garden looks wonderful. Our garden is prolific this year with all but squash. Very little zucchini, but we pick them small and eat them almost as fast as they grow. Who wants to bake zucchini bread? Not me!
