Welcome Juliet

Juliet is sized a tad bigger than what I would expect for a grape tomato but smaller than a Roma. Last night she ended up in a salad of just-snipped shredded basil, red onion, avocado, tuna and white beans.

We’re having fun with the salads this summer. Earlier this week, it was a mango slaw with mint and lime that had to be tasted to be believed. The rule is that something from the yard has to be thrown in.

Use this space as an open thread if you like. There seems to be a lot going on in our gardens and out. I see the DeKalb Public Library is the latest unit of local government sent to the doghouse, and that the synthetic skating rink is being dismantled. Is the Fire Department’s deal with NIU on your mind?
