I've given up on growing tomatoes. The leaves always get spotty and rot no matter what I do. So! The teenager and I are turning the wire cones into armatures for a pair of tree shaped sculptures. Collaboration! We need a pair of bases, plywood squares or something.
(On the parking lot). It's been a very cool spring so far. The seedlings I sprouted aren't liking it, but the Habaneros from the nursery are a lot more established. Yesterday was spent raking, clearing out the pots and filling them with mixed planting media-old dirt with wormy goodness, compost and new bagged garden soil. I also fired up the smoker. Jerk chicken, a ready made marinated pork loin (on sale!) and a cute little dry rubbed brisket came out after four hours slow cooked to tender perfection. Yum! Leftovers!
A bit of lamb shank, some white bean and tarragon cous cous. Hearts of palm and artichoke salad on baby spinach. Seafood bisque with toast points, mushroom caps with blue cheese and bacon. Pear almond tarts! Petite fours!
Much of last evening was spent switching out the Iphone art with Lucky Cats woodprint/collages in a set of ready made frames with new mattes. It's like stepping back a thousand years, tech wise. And they look really good. Today I delivered them to the Adler Gallery. Maybe I'll get lucky.
