The summer of 2014 in Portland has been nearly Iowagian. Usually, we get highs in the 90s for about 2 weeks.

My seriously scaled back zucchini are overproducing. I am not complaining, mind you. It just means that CorgiPants spends most evenings trotting around in her fenced in yard, barking at dogs on walks and meeting new friends who wander by. While I can, pickle, and freeze the bounty.
