I wish the weather had been better for the birthday boy, and even though it reached a balmy 44 with the wind it was freaking freezing. At least we didn’t get the forecasted snow showers this morning. Ted seemed a bit down in the dumps about it, so we took what is becoming our weekly field trip to the Home Depot. It’s a shame they don’t serve beer and have a pub like our favorite grocery store, Wegmans.
Wegmans is awesome. We have a Wegmans Growler that we call Junior. We go every week to get our growler on and grocery shop. It makes dealing with those shoppers that must really believe they are the ONLY people shopping that day more tolerable. You know the ones. They park their cart in the middle of the aisle and then stand next to it perusing their choices of canned fruit cocktail. They tear out of an aisle without stopping to make sure someone who can’t see them isn’t coming. They let their spawn run amok with the junior carts. But, I digress…
At the HD, we got some more material for trellises. We need two more. And, we got some stuff so Ted can paint the hallway ceiling this week (hint, hint).
Anyway, Happy Bday Ted! The fab supper of blackened scallops and mango/pineapple salsa that you made was amazing. (Hey, I’m not the retired chef!)
Next…I promised you berries. We want to try branch out with fruit. Does anyone have any suggestions about the best two species of blueberries to cross-pollinate? And what’s your favorite fig? There are like 500 varieties. Who knew?
