Easy BBQ for us, most likely......burgers, dogs, and chicken. Typical.....with lots of adult beverages. :)

July 4th is my birthday. My sister usually cooks for my elderly parents and me. I think she is finally convinced that I want traditional BBQ pork steaks & mustard potato salad like we made as kids. No fancy rubs on the meat or dill in the potatoes. She can get fancy with anything else she wants to fix, just give me those two cooked homestyle.

I'm hoping that we will have new potatoes for a potato salad on Canada Day (July 1). Other than that, I haven't given it much thought. I did, however, plant blue (purple), red, and white potatoes this year just for potato salads...

CWS,

You have a Green Thumb ... It must be lovely to have a real veggie garden.

Thanks for sharing and feedback and Happy Canada Day.

Margi.

Right now it is more like a black thumb from all the weeding...I can't stand to wear gloves--too hot!

CWS,

Sounds like you need a bit laboral collaboration up in Ontario ... How far are you from Toronto ?

What about cotton painterīs gloves ?

What is the average temperature up there ?

Usually it is much cooler in early am ... why work in mid part of day when it is at least 15 to 20 degrees hotter ?

Take care of yourself ...

Kindest,
Margi.

Toronto is 4 hours away. With 3000 row feet, weeding is a day-long affair (well, more than one day). And, the plants are often wet in the a.m. from the dew. I don't like to work around my plants when they are wet. My grandmother taught me to weed after the plants are dry, less risk of passing diseases from one plant to another. Whether this is true or not, I don't know, but her gardens were always spectacular. And, there are fewer mosquitoes in the heat of the day. I am allergic to most repellents (that work--the natural ones I've tried don't last long enough. As it is, I slather on SPF 60, wear a hat (which I loathe--my head gets hot), and wear light-weight cotton surgical scrubs. Gloves are just too much. FWIW, I live in surgical scrubs around the house. They are great!

CWS,

Yes forgot about the dew ... Understand. It is alot of labor and I am sure spectacular like your Grandmomīs ... You are too modest.

I like those big Panama type hats ... It is pretty desert like here ... We have been lucky for a couple of days, as it was 35 centig ... and that is not comfortable in an interior city ... Listen to what your Nona told u ... I know nil about gardening, just truly appreciate it as I was born on cement !

Buona Notte,
Margi.

Got to run, it is already 21.30 hrs. Italy and Spain one, one ... tie score on Euro Cup ... Now off to have a light bite with a round of wine ...

Until tomorrow,
Margi.
