Summer BBQs

Just sharing a photo of the food we ate last night. 99% of it was produced here on CTF.

Rump steak from a cow raised here on CTF, salad with our own cucumber and tomatoes, Italian zucchini (lovely when grilled on the BBQ), and strawberries. G fried some of the strawberries on the hot plate. They are absolutely delicious done this way and made a nice accompaniment to the steak, well we thought so anyway.

Only the lettuce in the salad was purchased, because I've been a bit slack about growing lettuces this summer, mainly because I didn't have somewhere partly shaded to grow them. This has now been remedied though as I now have 2 long planters at the side of our garage which gets afternoon shade, plus I've covered them both with a hooped shade cover. Now all I have to do is remember to water them..ehem!

Hope you are enjoying the Summer produce from your garden too (those of you in the Southern Hemisphere that is!).
