Everyone is planted!
What are in those pots? Lettuce, kale, 3 kinds of tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, cauliflower, strawberry, 3 kinds of sweet peppers, 1 jalapeno, oregano, 2 basil, thyme, rosemary and I think that is it? I cannot wait to watch them grow! I went with the baby plants because I am starting early and I have time for them to grow (being 1/3 the price helped too). All of my plants were grown by the farm I bought them not in a foreign country and imported it to the US. I liked this. I have to keep an eye on the night time temps and make sure I bring everyone in when it gets close to 40! I really hope they do well this season!
I enjoyed a light lunch on the balcony with my new plants! Salad with a slice of multigrain sourdough (yet another Wegmans bread, I have a small problem) and a baby fig cookie. The reason for my lunch being so small is that I had been snacking on delicious fig cookies throughout planting!
Salad of mix greens, cuc, maters and wheat berries.
I would have loved to sit outside and enjoy the amazing day we were having but I had to head inside and finish my Maryland State taxes. Barf! 2 pages of federal vs. 6 pages of state. Maryland taxes are ridiculously stupid, but I got through it.
It was a good thing I finished when I did because this was Sissy’s way of telling me she was ready for dinner. She looks rather large in this picture, but I swear she is not a fat cat!
Once the taxes were done it was onto cleaning! Again not exciting but had to get done.
After finally tackling the bedroom I headed out for a nice run. I did about 4.5 miles and my knee felt great! When I got home I did some push-ups, rollin and core.
Then it was time to hit the showers and get dinner started!
As part of my effort to eat more fish I cooked us up some trout. I am becoming and big fan of trout. Easy to cook, cheap, non-fishy and a sustainable fish. I just dusted the fillets with lemon pepper before grilling.
I grilled the asparagus before the fish (I really like asparagus grilled or baked a lot more than steamed) and added some parm and thyme to some arborio rice.
A very nice Sunday meal to round out a nice weekend.
I think I am going to have a little chocolate and snuggle down for some more Life on Discovery. Animals are so cool!
I hope you had a great weekend!
