I like green figs on the tree, but not this late in the season when I wonder if they will ever ripen before our Indian summer ends and cooler weather and the rains move in. These are Brown Turkeys, which will be amazing fall fare, if only . . .
Same with our tomatoes. You can't imagine how much water and care we have put into these. They've been sitting in the fog much of the summer. At least tomatoes can be fried and eaten green.
I like green better when it is where I want it.
Like in this Cucumber Gin and Tonic, yet another brilliant summer drink from my friend Trevor over at his blog. As if anything could be more refreshing on a hot Indian summer day.
I was wondering, though, what to do with the leftover cucumber juice.
How about a few green cubes?
What do you think about pink cubes? I've got a bunch of watermelon. . . .
I hope you're enjoying crisp fall weather rather than the heat wave we have predicted for the next couple of days. I'll be ready with my cubes though.
