Up 0.8 lbs at this week’s #weightwatchers weigh-in. I learned that a splurge on sweets can easily send me on a multi-day carb binge. Yikes.
Early Girl is probably about four feet tall — maybe taller — and has several fruits on the vine.
Most of the other varieties I planted also have little fruits — Black Krim, Sun Sugar, Ponderosa Red — but none are as far along as the aptly-named Early Girl.
I planted the remainder of the Ponderosa Red tomato plants that didn’t find a forever home with co-workers, so the final tomato plant count is:
- Four Ponderosa Red in the veggie garden
- One Ponderosa Red in a container
- One Black Krim in the garden
- One Sun Sugar (cherry) in the garden
- One Sun Sugar in a container
- One Yellow Pear in the garden (failing to thrive)
- One Yellow Pear in a container
- One Early Girl in the garden
Also in the vegetable garden: three Black Beauty eggplants, one Millionaire eggplant, and one cucumber.
Even though some of my seedlings didn’t make it (mostly basils and flowers), I’m pretty pleased with my vegetable garden so far this year.
I so rarely frequent coffeeshops anymore, I no longer have a go-to drink and I forget important details. So, whole milk latte for breakfast.
This bush blooms in both pink and blue. My soil’s pH must be totally whack.
Just hosted some “Doug-less” yoga at the fitness center at my work, to an audio recording of @dmallette from last year. Tired in a good way.
I brought my Sears 35 RF to Levis Square today, to finish off the roll of slide film I’d started this past weekend at the park with Connor. I only had six shots left, so once the roll was done, I took a few more with my iPhone.
I also enjoyed a $5 lunch from Nacho Daddy’s: two pork tamales and one barbacoa taco with everything. The taco was worth what I paid for it, but nothing special; the tamales, on the other hand, were much more moist and flavorful than most I’ve tried.
I’ve really enjoyed wandering amongst the Lunch at Levis Square crowd these past couple of weeks. The food trucks and concerts are scheduled weekly through the end of September, and I think I’m going to plan to photograph at every one, so maybe I’ll eventually be That Redheaded Lady With The Camera to all the downtown folks.
Like many people (including my late Memaw), the recipes I concoct aren’t so much measured as they are eyeballed. That said, these five-spice shirataki noodles are such a hit with my son that I want to at least share the basics, just in case someone out there would like to try it for themselves (or their own picky offspring).
Down 2.6 lbs at #weightwatchers this week! That’s the last two weeks’ gains gone. I’m pretty damn pleased with myself. Momentum FTW!
While taking a walk at the park, Connor spotted this giant stump and asked if he could climb up on it and I could take his picture. This was how he posed.
