We got another 1 inch rain overnight,but no storm. Everything is greening up.
I took this out the kitchen window toward the feeding tree. I can't believe how green the grass is getting.
The Grackles are back.....and the Red Wing Blackbirds.
I planted two varieties of agastache seeds from a 'blogger friend' and they were up in less than a week.....maybe the broccoli with take a hint. Kris, you need to tell me how you get such dark healthy color in your lettuce. Mine looks anemic.
Today is supposed to be a nice 60° and I hope to do some cleaning off of my garden. I am no Larry. Mine still has debris from last season.
I am still waiting for the hellebore to bloom.......maybe 4 possible. So far this plant is "much ado about nothing" in my book.
I set another 1/2 gallon of yogurt this morning. I can't believe I have eaten almost all of the other one. I am doing this a little different. I took some warm morning milk....did not pasteurize it at all and put it in a pan of hot water to bring it from 80° to 110°; stirred in the Dannon starter and set it on the heating pad. I want to compare taste between it and the pasteurized one. I will be freezing some starter from the best flavored ones.
