September In Bloom

Summer is over, but it’s peak hurricane season.  Luckily the tropics have been calm.  We’ve had daily afternoon thunderstorms, but I don’t mind them.  It’s just enough rain to water my vegetable seedlings.  It’s not too late to start your fall vegetable garden if you’re in USDA zone 9b or 10a.

Want to experience a real change in seasons?  Take a road trip to one of these places to see fall foliage in the South.

Look for a dramatic night sky this week, especially tonight’s super blood moon.

How smart are dolphins?  We often see them “making nets” while they’re feeding, swimming in circles with such power it feels like our kayaks might capsize.  I never knew that behavior was specific to our local Florida dolphins.dolphins

Here are the essential items in Alice Waters’ kitchen, and they’re all beautiful.

We picked our last mango.  Here is a mango love story.  

Two recipes I recommend:  avocado bread and arepas with mango sauce.  This aquafaba sounds so bizarre I may have to try it.

      The arepas are incredible. I’ll be making your maple pecan banana muffins soon, too. Thank you, Chelsea!
