Yesterday the sweet potatoes went in the garden – they’d been on the window sill since November, and finally were beginning to stretch out! I found several small ones at the Pole Green Market last fall and couldn’t resist trying then in a glass. Now to see if they make more!
Last weekend I was pleased to visit with my brother and his family in Herndon, where they have a lovely fish pond! I still have fond memories of my grandmother’s in Georgia. They’ve done a really good job with it, and it’s mostly self sustaining. They haven’t added any goldfish for several years – they breed and replenish themselves. Very friendly fish – they come up and nibble at your fingers!
Also had a chance to meet their rescued Shar-peis, Max and Kate. Inscrutable animals, but fun and very well behaved.
