Summer update, making cheese, garden growing, market time coming

Tons of things have gone on in the past three months...

I've learned to make cheese, and we're all enjoying my Short-Cut Mozzarella on homemade pizza. Yes, Mom makes a really good pizza crust. Just as soon as some veggies are ready, I can envision making the traditional Margaurite pizza with fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, and our fresh mozzarella. The rest of the family thinks pizza has only mushrooms and pepperoni, and it certainly doesn't have fresh tomatoes on it... They're in for a surprise!

After 2 months, we got rain.

There's something about rain falling on plants that nourishes them in a way no fertilizer, well water, or even tender loving care can duplicate. You can almost see the Spaghetti Squash, Broccoli, Cauliflower and Cabbage gowing.

Our greenhouse (the small 12 x 20 one) is slowly but surely being converted to Cindy's Aquaponics project. She's got ton's of stuff growing, including strawberries, Utah celery, and hot peppers, things we couldn't dream of growing outside.

 Also in the greenhouse are the herbs... 7 different kinds of mint (grown in large barrels), 5 kinds of basil, 2 kinds of chives, thyme, tarragon, rosemary, curly parsley, and cilantro. Most of it is ready to go for the opening day of the Cedar City Downtown Farmer's Market on Wednesday, July 25 at 4 pm.

 Ok, time to go milk the goats, and see what kind of cheese Mom want's me to make today. I know she's baking potato bread.
