We have a few flowers blooming in the yard, but I don’t feel right picking them when they are still working hard to grow. At the store this morning, I saw they had wildflower bouquets with rosemary in them, and I thought to myself- I definitely can do that.
Our pepper plants are actually exploding right now, and I’m so glad I didn’t rip them out of the ground in frustration rage a few months ago. But anyway, we had a good handful of shishito peppers early on, that we roasted in a pan. Along with some basil and chives that we mixed with yogurt and lemon for dipping. Easy and delish.
Outside: We sadly lost part of a big tree in the storm. Our shade will be missed, but the garden will be happy with a touch more sunshine.
Reading: Be Your Own Herbalist. For using all the herbs growing in the garden.
The worst bedtime chore: Filling the humidifier. Whoever designed it clearly never tried to do it while also holding a tired baby.
Enjoying: Our weekly box of farm veggies delivered to our door. It’s like back in the day when the milkman came. And they also bring us eggs, and meat, and coffee, so it’s kinda the best.
Hoping: Our biggest tomato will be ready soon! We have bacon in the fridge just waiting to be a BLT!
