Yesterday the overhanging branches in the backyard were cut down, the grass was cut, the mulch was spread and the lights that those damn squirrels chewed through were fixed. The flowers are in, the herbs are planted and we’re done. All I have to do is remember to water everything. I’m usually good for about 4 weeks before I start to slip and then the garden becomes survival of the fittest!
This morning I woke to a beautiful rainbow in a red sky. The rainbow was gone by the time I took the picture. I just thought I’d share that.
I try to do all or at least part of our meals outside. Be it on the BGE, Weber, or gas grill. Last night we had sausage stuffed peppers with pesto linguini. The peppers were baked on the BGE with oak smoke. The linguini wasn’t. Since I now have herbs growing again they are taking a prominent position in everything I create. The packaged stuff is gone till the fall, or till I kill it all off.
This summer the plan is to make our own sausages, the summit being blood sausage. It’s my death-row meal.
Be well and eat well.
