It isn't being green...or red...
,but it sure is yummy. Long time, no blog. I have continued to enjoy the earth's bounty. Look, I have little green tomatoes. Maybe I should fry them up and make a movie about it called "Fried Green Tomatoes". Oh, turns out someone already did that. My plans are always being foiled by copyright laws. What if I called the movie "Fryd Greene Tomatos"? Misspelling one word of popular products and selling it as your own seems to work with other generic spin-offs.
In addition to watching my garden grow, I have been eating the fruits (literally) of other people's labor. The strawberries in this picture are from Littlewood Farm in Plainfield, Vermont. Thank you Joey and Betsy. They are delicious. I have been eating local strawberries morning, noon, and night. They are a great addition to cereal, salads, ice cream, or just own their own. Did I mention that I love strawberries. I have already frozen 2 quarts. It's hard to remember right now that Winter will come and if I want to eat something other than Turnip stew in February without depleting the oil supply, I have to start planning now.
Today was an absolutely perfect day weather-wise. After the heat-wave earlier this week, which brought temperatures in this area to 95 degrees with massive amounts of humidity, I welcomed a day when the temperature didn't rise about 75. I met up with a friend from college, her beautiful baby Georiga, and husband at Shelburne Farms. I saw a 1 hour old goat, piglets, donkeys, the sweetest Swiss Brown calf, and lots of other animals. It's baby time in the barnyard and they sure are cute.
I have about 8 million other things to write about including my response to Michael Moore's new movie Sicko that we saw tonight, but I will have to save them for another post. It's 11:52 P.M. and I have to get to bed before I turn into a pumpkin.
