Dog days of summer.

Whew, it’s been hot.  Makes things run like molasses, where each step feels like it’s stuck in concrete.  Times like these become more about filling up animal’s water and finding them shade, then large leaps towards new projects.  The guard dogs got a haircut to keep cool, and our dog Todd’s begun lying on the cool tile of the bathroom floor.  The heat does help our peaches, which are flying at us right now.  This year we’ve gotten the first taste of the varieties we spent so many hours selecting.  And so far, so good.  Thus far, we’ve tasted four varieties peaches, and I’d say three are knock-it-out-of-the-park delicious.  And, the fourth is pretty good, too.  We’ve been jamming, practicing for our future product lines.  This process makes my brain fire on all cylinders.  I love it.


Supposedly, today’s the last day of the heat stretch.  Just in time for Saturday, when John and I are driving down to San Diego to pick up two new guard dogs!  Otherwise known as.. PUPPIES!

To help you get through the hot summer months, here’s a quick and delicious salsa recipe.  This recipe came about from winging it in the kitchen with some extra tomatillos from the garden.  When our groundskeeper Jose try it, he let me know that in Mexico, this simple dish is called Lazy Salsa.  Perfect for the dog days of summer!

    So, let’s see…..Basil, Sage, Pops(Poppy) and Ginger. That leaves Rosie (Rosemary) and Herbie (Herb). I don’t think you should consider Dill Weed.
