It's Fair Time and Garden Eats
The Placer County Fair is this weekend and it's free. You have until 10 tonight to enjoy. It's the time of year I make sure I'm home to watch my place and especially my parking spot. I knew with the free entrance fee the "free" parking around my neighborhood would be especially utilized. I planned trips in the a.m. and worked on my project, another room strip, texture spray and paint adventure in the afternoon/evenings. Incorporated into this was a slow barbequed pork loin with slow roasted potatoes and grilled grey zucchini from the garden. I harvested a few of the potatoes just under the soil but left the plants intact as the have not fully died away yet. THe varieties I harvested werre Sierra Gold and La Soda Reds. The zucchini is plentiful and by far the best producer at this time. I have a few Ichiban eggplant getting ready. Hopefully in a couple of weeks everything will be rolling.
