Things I looked at this morning
When I removed the strawberry plants from the bed in front of the house, I hated to see that space just sit there growing weeds, so I grabbed a ten-cent envelope of flower seeds I had on hand and planted them, without reading the envelope.
I planted beets in the spring, and only a few of them came up. I think I made borscht once, and I left the rest of the beets in the ground all this time. Today I pulled up one huge beet, peeled and diced it, and microwaved it.
Cliff wanted me to take a picture of his plate, so here it is. Stuffed peppers, green beans, and Harvard beets, all brought in from the garden this morning. The hamburger in the stuffed peppers, of course, is from Sir Loin, Bonnie's calf from last year.
