Summer has arrived in Dallas. As we flirt with 100 degrees, the air lays blanket thick over my garden. Yet even with hot, hot temperatures, bright colors and fresh smells fill Promise of Peace Community Garden. Cucumbers and okra are taking over my bed. I harvest tomatoes, eggplant, ginormous basil, spinach, and swiss chard. In my neighbors’ plots, pumpkins, cantaloupe and honeydew grow heavy on the vine.
Here are a few pictures I snapped this week.
A beautiful, hot place.

Beautiful. I’ve often thought about using a community garden. I may just have to branch out next year. Thanks for the tour.

Beautiful produce! I love Zinnias. Are they in your garden or yard or both? I hope more recipes are in store for us. In the meantime, stay cool!
