Midsummer Extravaganza

Thank you to everybody who came out to our Midsummer Extravaganza last week!

I’d been away for the weekend and did not get a chance to make my famous candied bacon. I posted the recipe a while ago, though, so if you’re in need of a fix before the next potluck you can make your own. The star of this party was the eggplant dip made by roommate Will – I’ll see if I can wrest the recipe out of him to write up here.

Another main attraction was the birdhouse making station, overseen by Norma and Harue.

With some expert drill-handling from the kids, they put together several birdhouses.

These will join forces with the birdhouses we’ve already hung above the perimeter fence.

All in all it was another rousing success! Thanks to everybody who brought a dish and their presence. The garden’s looking lush (if a little dry these days). Keep on watering, and happy gardening!
