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.
Oh, Yum. I love corned beef. And you are right, not too briny is great.ReplyDelete
And Zelensky has been a total surprise: charismatic and brave. Vlad was NOT expecting that. And Marge Three Names is another Russian propaganda troll. Ugh. Despicable. And don't get me started with Mancin...
There are so many things which never made their way into Vlad's inferior intellect mostly because he still thinks it 1956.Delete
It's rather embarrassing for our Congress...certain members, to not have respect. Screw them. Don't expect me to shed tears if something terrible befall them then either. Fuck em'.ReplyDelete
Americans are paying attention to what Washington is doing, and in a good way. The Republicans, they are shitting in their pants all over the place.Delete
I'm having the same problem with my peach tree too - loads of fruit but only about the size of a marble! I might give it another year to see if she gets a reprieve!ReplyDelete
I've had mine for 4 years and so far have been able to eat only one tiny nectarine and it is, unfortunately, taking up space.Delete
Good luck with your spring projects and I hope the corned beef turns out wonderfully. Very jealous of the 70 degree weather. We are supposed to get that next week and I am looking forward to it.ReplyDelete
If the beef turns out well I'll post pictures. Either way the dogs will be happy, they get the fatty part.Delete
The Party of Putin isn't even trying to hide. Fuck 'em.ReplyDelete
True, and they are shitting all over the place.Delete
