Well, another week has gone by. I cannot believe it is the end of May already. In a couple of weeks we will leave for vacation and I feel completely unprepared...

On a better note, I had two great weeks of pea season with the best shelled yield ever. Usually it is about 1 cup shelled per pound unshelled, with these two batches it was double, so I was able to make: penne with peas, asparagus, and scallions, pea and ricotta torte, pea and pork belly carbonara, and farro salad with peas, favas, and tomatoes. I also made English muffin bread; which was easy and turned out quite well.

A week ago Saturday, we went to a regional musical; "50 Shades, the Musical." I was not sure exactly what to expect, but it was quite funny. Way over the top with a ton of vulgar humor, but still pretty fun, particularly if you read the books (I read 2 of 3.) I would guess it might offend if you were really in love with the books, but if you liked them or were kind of meh, like me, it was funny.

We made progress on our small vegetable and herb gardens...The former now has: 1 Cherokee tomato, 2 Roma tomatoes, 1 Sweet 100 tomato, 2 Brandywine tomatoes, 1 yellow pepper, 1 orange pepper and 1 jalapeno pepper. This week, I will add basil (yes, it is an herb, but grows well with tomatoes.) For the herbs, we have thyme and rosemary (having trouble getting sage,) and mint in a pot. Once I find some sage and possible a serrano pepper plant, I think we will be done with that.

I also rode my bike for the first time in about a year yesterday. I was rusty and had my normal luck (a small crash,) but otherwise it went well. Heading to permanent home this week and hoping to be able to clean the porch and start cleaning the porch furniture. Until next time.
