After church this morning, Larry and the kids made me brunch while I worked out in the garden. It was all very secretive and the kids were so proud. Morgan made a delicious fruit salad, there was bacon and an incredible omelet and some juice.
The Orioles have been very busy building nests and sending out mating calls. The Hummingbirds don't have much of a chance at the feeders in the early spring. The Orioles come and feed on the nectar all day long. This is the male.
I spent most of th e day in my garden. I planted 20 tomato plants, 12 peppers, 6 chili peppers, basil, dill, tarragon, lemon balm, sage, cucumbers, eggplant, corn, zuchinni, squash, pumpkins, sunflowers, watermelon and tons of marigolds. I also weeded out two gardens and managed to get a nice little sunburn today.
Larry and the kids also made dinner. We had steak, some very nice wine and my favorite Balsamic grilled vegetables. Vegetables of your choice-I like yellow squash, zuchinni, mushrooms and red peppers. Add a half cup of olive oil, half cup balsamic, half cup sugar and a pinch of salt. Marinate for half an hour and grill. Sweet and delicious.
It was very breezy here today and we had several kites in our garage just beckoning to be used.
