90 Degrees Early

This morning at 8:45 it was 90 degrees outside.  With the coming of summer heat we try to make sure outdoor activity is done early in the morning and late in the evening.  Today is kind of a lazy day, I'm just working on a lesson and being a vegetable.  I'm planning on doing some scouting and glassing on the weekends in the next month or so which means we will get a bit higher in elevation and a bit cooler while we're there.  I plan on locating some water sources and game trails then glassing with binoculars and a spotting scope for bedding areas of the deer.  The time outside will be nice and using the scouting time to check our rucks to make sure they are setup right for the hunt will be fun. 

Below are some pics of the garden that needs to be re-mulched, and the goats....

We're not sure why the beans aren't doing well, but they are starting to produce, so we're just pulling the browned leaves and going with it.

We're still getting strawberries, but the heat is drying the fruit out.

Grilled Zucchini!!!

In the last couple of days we've gotten about 5 pounds of zucchini from the garden.  We decided that we had to prepare it in our favorite way.  We grilled it!!!

Those slightly caramelized round slices of zucchini are delicious!!! Here's how we grill it.

Grilled Zucchini
  •  Slice or cut spears from small to medium zucchini
  • Brush both sides lightly with olive oil
  • Season with your choice of seasoning (we use Canadian or Montreal Seasoning)
  • Place on clean grill on medium or about 350 degree's
  • Cook until both sides have heavy grill marks, the zucchini is soft and each side is caramelized in spots.
I like to season both sides of the zucchini, my family thinks this makes the vegetables too spicy so we should only do one side.  You'll have to try both ways then decide for yourself.

Enjoy and God Bless!!
