Alien Egg harvests! 👽 Or just an Eggplant and some other fine summer produce straight from the garden beds! Dinners are glorious this time of year. Eggplants aside, I enjoy basically everything shown in the last frame raw and uncooked - for the most part. There are just as many flavors hidden in these gems right off the plant as there are vibrant color hues to them! Photo collection courtesy of my mom, @briefagan and myself. 😋🤙🏼 #JerseyFresh#FindYourOuterknown#GardenState#YewJersey#OrganicGardening#GrowYourOwn#JerseyTomato#PinkBrandywine#Heirloom @bakercreekseeds @outerknown @surfinglife @theinertiahealth @organiclifemag @njdotcom @alivemarket

Amazing dinner... hubby had the venison meatballs stuffed with goat cheese and covered with a sour cherry compote for an appetizer and Matthew and I shared the riccota covered with chop Rosemary and honey with roasted dates. For dinner we have the soft shell over Lobster Fra Diavolo steak frite with truffle fries and squid-ink fettuccine with crab meat. Amazing flavors!
Epargyreus clarus, Silver-spotted skipper. Epargyreus derives from the Greek word “argyros” meaning silvered, and “clarus” is Latin for clear - the name refers to the luminous white spot on the ventral hind wing. The spot is caused by pigments within the scales of the wing that reflect light in a certain way, with some color wavelengths being absorbed and others reflected or emitted, resulting in the color we see on the butterfly as a white spot. The white wavelength light is reflected, while the other colors are absorbed. Even while flying, this white spot on the hind wing appears to glow and catches the gaze of the observer. Skippers (Hesperiidae) are small butterflies (Lepidoptera) with relatively short wings, thick bodies, and fast flight.
Skipper describes their flight pattern: it is undulating or wave-like. This species is native to North America and is common and widespread throughout. They may be seen in fields, meadows, wetlands, along edges of woods, ponds, uncut roadsides, and at native wildlife and pollinator gardens. Flight period in New Jersey ranges from April through October.
Populations of all pollinator species including butterflies are currently in decline from human activity, such as habitat destruction and fragmentation, deforestation, public overuse of pesticides, monoculture crops, roadside herbicide spraying and mowing, and air soil and water pollution. As more natural undisturbed landscapes are increasingly cut and developed to accommodate the growing number of humans on the planet, the continued existence of these species more than ever rests in our hands. What can you do to help these amazing earthlings that we humans depend upon for our own species survival? Plant native annual and perennial flowering plants, start a wildflower garden, use organic chemical pesticide-free methods to grow vegetable and fruit crops, grow food not lawns, leave corridor of existing native plants like wildflowers or “weeds” uncut, and lastly support local and organic agriculture where pesticide use is restricted or limited.
Summer in the Garden State vibes: always stop for the roadside flowers 🌼🌸🌺 You feel this current energy? The Universe has shaken you to awaken you. And now, here you are, still standing and ready to move forward. Keep on keeping on, my Loves. It’s all happening. 💫
