Well, things are going fine with my 2018 vegetable garden – despite being away for 10 days and temperatures hovering around 100 here on the Kansas prairie (just across the river from the great city of Kansas City, MO).

It is had to see in the picture (below) but my raised bed garden is flourishing with lots of new growth since my last update.

It looks like I am going to have a ton of great tomatoes (right) and the basil is in full mid-summer foliage. The squash plants are really taking over and I hope they yield something, and the various pepper plants are growing high but little evidence of producing anything yet – but there is still time.

It is gazpacho season, as if it really is ever not gazpacho season… anyway, there are many variety you can make, but none as colorful and as fun as the recipe for Red Grape Gazpacho I found from the fine folks at the Food Network Magazine.

About the recipe for Red Grape Gazpacho from Food Network Magazine:

Puree the grapes, cucumber, bread, olive oil, 2 tablespoons water, the vinegar, garlic and 1 teaspoon salt in a blender until very smooth, at least 1 minute. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 30 minutes.”
