As usual this time of year, I'm going a little overboard baking with rhubarb now that it's available in the garden. (I do love rhubarb!)
Made my favorite rhubarb cake day before yesterday and Papa Pea ate the last piece with some milk after a hearty breakfast this morning.
We had a visit today with the four-year old twins my daughter has every Saturday. The little guy loves stalks of rhubarb dipped in sugar, but Chicken Mama gave him a small dish of honey to dip into today, and he thought that was pretty good. The little gal suggested I should bake a strawberry pie when I told her I was going to bake our (calorie-laden) Rhubarb Cream Pie. (She's not a rhubarb fan.) She's gonna have to wait another month or so for any strawberries from this garden.
And I did get that pie baked but not until late this afternoon. Now it's cooling in the refridge and won't be sampled until tomorrow. Can hardly wait.
We had more gray, drippiness until mid-afternoon when the sun broke through the clouds and our temperature soared into the high 60s. Our warmest temp so far this spring, I think.
Tomorrow and Monday are supposed to be sunny so with the help of my Under Gardener (that's Papa Pea), I'll be getting the recently received fifty new strawberry plants in the ground. And lots of emerging weeds out of the ground.
Still waiting for the planted onions, radishes and Sweet Peas to show their little green sprouts. They've had plenty of moisture now so with a bit of warm weather, they may make an appearance.
Hope you're all having a great Memorial Day Weekend!
