Waited a year for those

Anya apricots. Picked this morning, since I’ll have to wait about five years for mine. Worth the trip to Andy’s Orchard, and I got some early-season peaches and cherries, too.

Out of curiosity, I added some raspberry honey from The Honey Ladies, which surprised me by being my new favorite right up there with their less-sweet poison oak blossom.

All the employees were wearing lined black face masks with room for a filter, with a motif of red cherries with green stems and leaves,  and they had some for sale. Very reasonably priced. Very soft. Quite happy with mine.

Got home, walked in the door, walked in the kitchen, rinsed a good handful of those cherries and put them in a small bowl in front of my husband, who dove enthusiastically into them as his meeting and his screen continued.

Looked out the window and thought, there’s always a possibility of snails making it up the pot to my baby tree. So I’m saving the kernels again, out of curiosity if nothing else: a year ago I found two very differing methods of sprouting them, and somewhat against my better judgment followed the one that had you submerging them for 24 hours after their winter in the fridge.

It seemed a good way to rot them.

It was.

So I’ll try the damp paper towel thing next time, because, science!

(P.S. What would you do for your 40th when you can’t go anywhere?)

Let me know if you get any good ideas; I’m asking the same question about our 24th on Sunday!

It’s our 22nd on Sunday! We are planning a take out Greek fancy meal with our twins and will stream a virtual jazz concert by our friend Seth Kibel.

Happy anniversary! What to do, what to do? Well your favourite dinner from your favourite restaurant delivered. Flowers – or a plant for the table which can then go outside as a memento. Candles, best dishes and silver, tablecloth and napkins. Put on your best bib and tucker.

Then a zoom meeting with everyone having dinner at the same time.

Why yes, I am a little crazy. What makes you ask?
