Vegetable Porn (Can You Stand It?)

I'm like a new parent. I can't stop sharing pictures of my precious, er, fruits and vegetables. Don't worry, I can't go on like this for too long.

This tomato is just starting to turn red. Juicy!

The yellow squash are quite abundant now. We're cooking and freezing.

A bell pepper that, along with its siblings, will turn red in the coming weeks and be ready for roasting.

A small eggplant. There's moussaka in our future.

In other news, the moles are cooperating, but their unsightly hills continue to appear :

Tuesday's temperature topped out at 34,6ºC (94.3ºC), Wednesday's high was 33.4ºC. Storms are predicted for today. Some rain would be nice.

*********
PS - Sorry for the interruption, but a pretty good-sized storm on Wednesday night fried our DSL modem and we were off line for a day. Now, new modem up and running, we're back online. A lightning bolt hit very close and we lost power (the main breaker tripped) but we think a power surge, possibly through the phone line, killed the modem. Nothing else in the house was affected.

After the storm, the temperatures fell, but the humidity increased. Thursday's high was 31,3ºC, but it was very muggy. We got about 17mm of rain in the storm - a little more than half an inch. Every little bit helps.
