With my lack of foresight and planning, not to mention my inclination to just pick whatever starter plants were available at the Home Despot, my vegetable section doesn't have the variety and choice that one would hope for in a garden.
Which leads to the inevitable question.
What, exactly, does one do with Kale?

I didn't think "Partly Sunny" meant the rest of the fraction was meant to be "Partly Pouring with Thunder".
And our outdoor thermostat says 55. FIFTY FIVE at FIVE PM IN AUGUST.
Our Ballard Barbecue Index? 5 times. Maybe 6. With quality predictions like these, why not plan on a barbecue?

I found a little time to do everything but the trim paint last weekend.
Thanks for the action photo sweetie! I particularly like how it makes me look like Quasimoto!
But perhaps none of us are looking our best when doing home improvement tasks. I give you Martin in the Bunny Suit as an example.
Since everything's complete except the trim paint, I've declared the bathroom Done. I don't have that all-important fisheye lens that could capture the entire room in one shot, so I will present the finished product from multiple angles:
What have I been doing with the crop, apart from foisting it off on friends & family?
Raspberry Vinegar and Raspberry Cordials:Berries sprinkled with Granola - adapted from a recipe posted on the Floured Apron - using ground flax seed instead of the wheat germ.
And let's not forget the 5, count 'em, FIVE stuffed gallon bags of raspberries in the ginormous freezer.
Luckily the berry season is almost over. I might even miss it when it's gone.
