I am very excited to tell you that this:
Came from this, my very own container garden, just started two weeks ago!
Also very excited to say that my Goos are head over heels herbivores. I had no idea they would love a fresh herb salad quite as much as they did. Here they are on their "patio" which is a board on an old fish tank on a table with a beer box on it..for whatever reason, they love it.
There was much enthusiasm in grabbing the lavender and mint from the bowl. Even the chive flowers.
And again today, repeated this time with some oregano which was a big hit too! So much so that Cubbie grabbed some away from Trolli before he realized there was enough for everyone (and will be all summer!). Silly Goos...
And today we caught a glimpse of Squirrelly's spring babies, almost grown up! It's amazing to watch how fast they grow. Mom was no where to be seen but three of these little guys came out to gawk at the weird, tall hairless squirrels with the camera (me and H).
This is actually one shot where the tree forks..one baby on one side, another on the other.
Young squirrels have such cute white fuzzy bellies. Let me tell you, there are few things as nice on this earth as getting to rub a fuzzy white squirrel belly. And the squirrelly doesn't mind either..well, at least if she knows you! I wouldn't recommend it with a squirrel who doesn't know you that well. H used to rub Squirrelly's belly at night to help her sleep and she loved it. Whoever would have known?
And finally, the food..I whipped together some sushi tonight from some leftovers. A sushi ar-tiste I am not! They barely held together. But they tasted great with the avocado and carrot. Hopefully my technique will improve over time..please..maybe??
I was really excited to make my favorite salad dish..Oshitashi..a Japanese marinaded spinach salad. It turned out okay..I think I'll try a different recipe next time and maybe let it marinade more. I should have plenty of opportunities to practice soon as I just got a postcard from my farm share..the first deliveries start next Thursday..eeekk!!! I just yesterday cleaned out some purple cabbage and rutabaga (so sad I know, hiding my head in shame) leftover from last November.
Over and out for tonight good buddies!
