I love nasturtiums....
we had pickle day here at 66 seaview...I love dill pickles and this is the most wonderful recipe. Mr. Wolks Polish dills....I made 22 jars!!!!!
Yummmmm..makes my mouth water to just look at the pictures...I don't process them in a hot water bath..Just put them in the fridge..and they will last up to a year...we just ate last years last jar and they tasted like we just made them!!!
I will write out the recipe if anyone is interested...really easy
This is a picture of one of my dearest friends on earth.. and yes that is me.. Fiffy is 100 years old!!! I took her to lunch with a friend and she downed a huge brandy alexander and a pastrami sandwich!!!! She is Italian and taught me all the fine points of Italian cooking ....homemade pasta ..ravioli ...stuffed red peppers..bread ..cookies galore...at holiday time she would bake for days ...10 kinds of cookies....she is one of the greatest people I have ever known.....I love you Fiffy!!!
She lives on Cape Cod now. She used to live in East Boston and was born in the North End of Boston which is our Italian neighborhood in Boston . On Easter sunday in 1911!!
This picture is of a Ferry boat from woods hole to Martha's Vineyard...a beautiful island where I was married!!

The cabin was built by my grandmother and grandfather in 1926..it is just a tiny 3 room cabin..nearly unchanged ..the cabin on the left my uncle built when he was 14.. 1934 I believe..it has bunkbeds and two cots..not much room for anything else!! we built a deck and then added a dock we remove each fall.
Garden!!! lots of everything at this time of year....we really have to eat tomatoes 3 times a day!!
My favorite summer salad...cucumbers, red onions..tomatoes..and oil and vinegar dressing.....I usually add toasted bread rubbed with garlic!!!..yummmmmmm
