July 2018 Monthly Challenge

8438 Views 84 Replies 21 Participants Last post by  koukouvagia
July in my small part of the world means the garden is coming in. The farmers market is going at full speed. Tomatoes, beans, squash, greens, and all kinds of good stuff are out on the tables.. One Asian American farmer has fruits, vegetables, and herbs that are exotic to the area. This gives a small rural farmers market an international feel. As a site that has members all over the world some of you may have to think fresh harvest even if it is winter where you are. The challenge for July is:

Fresh Produce: fruits, vegetables, and fresh herbs

It can be a meal or a dish. What you grow, what you bought, or what you foraged. Fungi are included.

Morning Glory, hope you are feeling better and able to participate this month.

Have Fun,

So very grateful woodchucks don't like squash plants. Anyway, after efforts to discourage him/it/her, it seems to be gone. Maybe.
Unless it's dead I doubt it's gone. I use butternut squash to bait them then terminate.
I put wire a chunk to the trip plate in a large Havahart, close one end then when I trap one I dispatch it and take it up to feed coyotes with. A bit of advice - you have to close the trap at night and reset the next day otherwise you could end up with a skunk in there and now you have a different problem. Trust me on this one . . . .

Woodchucks undermine a lot of stuff. I hunt also so to me they are just another predator - a veggie predator. A lot of folks like us have chickens so foxes, coyotes, and a few that I won't mention are on the hit list.

@koukouvagia - that looks delicious. Okra is way underrated IMO.
