Well, the forecasters were right on this one. Today is Thursday and rain is falling. Light showers are covering the region. Light showers are good. Downpours not so good.
The leaves I let sit along the side of the house throughout the winter were raked away yesterday. On Friday, the temps are to climb into the mid 70's and spring planting will begin in earnest. On of the things I always look for at this time of the year are the peonies, especially the yellow ones since they were pricey as hell. I'm thinking of cutting down the nectarine tree. I get lots of blossoms, but little fruit, and the few nectarines that do grow never get larger than a marble before they fall off. I'm thinkin I can put tomato plants in there instead.
Biggie's meds are continuing to work. Every day there is some improvement. Last evening I made a cabbage dish, not corned beef and cabbage, and rather than sit down, he stood by my side waiting for the stray cabbage leaf. Yeah, Biggie loves cabbage. So does Lily. The like green peppers as well.
As for the corned beef? I have one soaking the the refrigerator. Because I don't like that briny taste, I always soak my beef before cooking. And I slow roast my corned beef. This year I may do it in the air fryer.
For decades, Republicans have been waiting for the next Ronald Reagan, an actor who many Conservatives dubbed "The Great Communicator." Well, after all of this time, he's here, however he's not what they want. Not only is he a Ukrainian, he is definitely not a bible thumping Evangelical Christian.
