A dozen English muffins, fresh from the griddle. (Was a Baker's dozen, but I ate the runt of the litter.) 🎠

Making Picalilli, a sweet pickle relish without cucumbers. It has cabbage, green tomatoes, sweet peppers, onions, and spices.

This year's largest beans. The straight one is 12 inches (30.5 cm) and the curved one is 13 inches (33 cm) Scarlet runner, quite tasty, with bright red flowers.

I voted. US citizen? Then you should too. It really matters this time.

New toy arrives! As if I didn't have enough already. But I wanted to try this and had some Amazon credits. Once tuned, it sounds pretty nice. (And weighs a heckuva lot less than my banjos do.)

Butterfly of the day. While going out to scrub horse water buckets and refill the, saw this Giant Swallowtail (Papilio cresphontes) fluttering about. Said to be the largest North American butterfly.

Oh my! ThingamaJig just made our first appearance since last year. Everything was canceled up to now. Two hours, outdoor market. $78 in tips!

Unlike yesterday's native lilies, these are from Asia. Yes, a spectacular show, but probably the result of generations of selection too.

@Altivo: Michigan Lily is native in this area. These plants grow to over 6 feet (2 m.) high and are perennials.
