Happy Memorial Day today!
I hope you are doing something fun with your friends and families (and eating good food too).
What's in the news this May 27?
The 17 year cicadas have descended upon us here in the Northeast.
Lucky for them, I am a bug lover, because they are everywhere.
They greet me at my front door in the a.m., on my mailbox, on every tip of every flower, waking up from a 17 year sleep underground.
I am intrigued by these prehistoric, strange looking things, related to the shrimp family? (they are both arthropods, didn't you know? I wouldn't eat crawfish either), but I doubt I'll miss them when they are gone.
They are very sloppy, leaving their carcases all over the lawn. I'm tired of picking up after them and squishing them under foot.
I keep reading about how tasty these locusts are, and keep seeing chefs putting them in tacos and frying them up to serve with dipping sauces.
Some Memorial Weekend Highlights: Recipes to follow.
Looks like our spinach has leaf minor (if you have any "organic" suggestions, I am open).
Our potatoes and broccoli are doing really well, as are the beets and onions.
Beans and carrots are taking their sweet ass time.
Haven't had any really mean emails from the Militants lately, they got rid of the garden manager, and they seem to have mellowed a bit.
Could it be? We'll see.
and let's not lose site on what Memorial Day is really all about.
Remembering and honoring the good people that serve and have served our country.
Enjoy your day.
See you tomorrow with some good recipes.
