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!
The train to Looneyville is picking up speed.
