Blueberries on the Hoof
Yesterday we went to Buelton to pick Blueberries at a great little spot, Santa Barbara Blueberries. They have a wide variety of bushes so you can find your favorite ones. It's just the beginning of their season and they are only open limited hours, so be sure to check out their Facebook page for updates.

More Garden Goodies
I just couldn't decide which veggie photo I liked the best.
So I put all my fovorites online and you can choose your favorite.
Maybe this weekend I'll get out and get some more panoramic photos. It sure is too hot to sit in front of the computer, maybe a nice beach breeze would help.

Treats from the Garden
The tomato on the right is the same on from
the other day.
It's a variety called a Garden Peach
The yellow one on the far left with the green stripes
is a "Banana Legs".
The ones that did not make the cut for the modeling job made a delicious Chili. It's been a good season for the garden, even though the tomato plants have generally not been very happy this year.

We're finally trying to get back to a normal life here. We recently had a
wild fire in the hills near Santa Barbara, "the Gap Fire". We were not warned to
evacuate where we live, but we did anyway when the sky turned brown and it looked like
the middle of the night at 6pm. I'll get some photos online from some of
those crazy days, but right now I just have to say thank you to all the
amazing fire fighters and the families who worry about them when they
are on the job. Thanks to them not one house was lost.
Still, through all the craziness, I have been taking the time to tinker with my camera. This is a beautiful translucent striped tomato variety called a Garden Peach. This is one of the last ones my wife coaxed off the plant and it is beautiful. It is actually fuzzy like a peach. And this one is still sitting here waiting to be the subject of more photos. But the others from the plant have been quite delicious.

The Kiwis in the kitchen were getting a little soft so it was time to do something with them. I guess I could have just eaten them... but then I wouldn't have some cool photos to show for it.
