Whew!! What a busy month we've had. We were traveling half the month. Ten days in Oregon visiting family. I love Oregon and always hate to leave.
While in Oregon we visited a family member's chicken coop. She had a great set up. I am thinking a post showing their coop is in order.
We also had more rain in July than I ever remember in all my years living in Southern California. It is so dry that we welcomed the inch we received. They are talking of a large El Nino and I sure hope it means above average rain for us.
In between trips we went to a concert with friends. It was hot and humid that evening and we were all a sweaty mess but it was so much fun. I have a bucket list of things I want to do these days and that was one of them. I hope there will be more.
We just returned from a camping trip to our local mountains. We are so lucky to live so close to the beach and mountains and everything in between.
My sister in law and I worked together to make baked smores. She was determined we would have smores despite the fact that for this year, with the drought, no campfires were permitted.
They were amazing and we all loved it. Recipe to follow this week.
I have not mentioned the garden as this is our winter type rest. In the heat of summer, I suspend planting. I harvest what I can and wait for fall planting time. Our second growing season.
