My cherry tomatoes aren’t supplying as many tomatoes lately. Maybe the heat has slowed them down. I know it’s slowed me down.
My Shasta daisies never set blooms after I cut the dead blooms off.
I read that many plants will simply shut down when it’s really hot. Hopefully they’ll start blooming again come fall.
I have some recent finds I found online that I want to share with you.
Clever Pet Brush:
One is this pet brush I’m thinking about buying to brush Ivy with. It has a very clever way to dispose of the hair.
It is currently $15.99 at Amazon.com.
Also I was browsing Pinterest the other day and came across this photo of marinated tomatoes.
The recipe sounds delicious especially on these hot summer days.
Here is where you go to get the recipe. The photo alone makes me salivate.
I’m thinking cooking beans and cornbread with these tomatoes and slicing up a cucumber.
If you want to go a step further, there’s this recipe for cucumber salad.
It’s easy and has the addition of onions for extra flavor.
I just love cold foods from the refrigerator when it’s hot outside.
Glass Storage Container Set:
And lastly, I use these every day and love them. It’s the Glasslock 11292 18-Piece Assorted Oven Safe Container Set.
I bought mine back in 2016 from Amazon. I accidentally broke the biggest round one when I was attempting to get it out of the refrigerator a few months ago.
You click it closed on all four sides to make sure your food has no way of spilling out.
Oftentimes I store cooked food in a big one. Then when I eat it again I store the leftovers in a smaller one to take up less room in my refrigerator.
They were $25.99 when I bought them, and are $39.99 now. So that’s quite a price increase.
I Googled around to other stores looking for them for you and they’re kind of pricey everywhere. Sure beats plastic though.
