This has been one of those days that we all have occasionally. Nothing has gone exactly as I had hoped or planned today.
The highlight of the day was the haul from my two forays into the strawberry patch. Our first day's harvest of berries totaled exactly 5 pounds. Can't beat that with a stick.
After our misty morning, the sun actually did come out for about two hours. What a treat! Unfortunately, I wasn't home for most of that period so we didn't make any headway on construction nor did I move ahead on garden projects.
When I got home it was starting to gray up again so I grabbed my bowl and went out to pick more berries before rain came again.
Got this lovely bowlful for my efforts.
Then I managed to get some lettuce, scallions, radishes and rhubarb harvested just before the rain drove me in.
I chopped up the rhubarb and started to make some sauce for the freezer. After lighting a flame under the full saucepan, I left the kitchen . . . and completely forgot about it.
Ever had your house filled with Eau d' Burned Rhubarb? No? Lucky you. Sure hope I can resurrect the pan.
The rain has stopped right now but the weatherman is telling us to expect thunderstorms with possible damaging hail tonight. Oh, my poor unprotected tomaters!
