A Spring Morning

Here's something I like to see when I open the refrigerator door in the morning:
A day with rice balls all ready to go can't be all bad.

Here is my breakfast kale:

I made a kale and feta omelette and used the first garden chives of the spring.

Today has been eventful in a way - there are ducks on our pond and they were quacking loudly this morning. Our pond has a major leak so I hope it stays full long enough for the ducks to do what they need to do. Also, it rained a bit today. That meant I didn't have to turn the water on and water the pea and lettuce seeds I planted yesterday.

My vegetable gardening has always been half-assed. I'd stick stuff in here and there and mostly it would get eaten by woodchucks. After last fall though, when Michaela and I prepared the vegetable garden, I should probably put more thought into it. I ordered some fancy tomato plants from White Flower Farm. I also bought some corn seeds. I'm interested in potatoes, kale and brussels sprouts too. Maybe I should think about broccoli? Oh, and garlic!

Jeeze, I just checked out the last frost dates in my area and one page said May 30th and another said June 10th. Guess I'll be waiting a while to put that corn in.

In the mean time I'm checking out the alpine strawberry plants I moved up from Brookline to see if they've flowered yet. I've got to take it easy.

Alright, now I'm off to work some more on the lust blanket.

I think I'd like to be a woodchuck in your neighborhood!
