Bug Catcher ~ Tidbits
Well, another birthday has passed here on Rooster's Crow Farm. Our Vet-Tech Daughter turned 20 yesterday. I wasn't allowed to take photographs (she just doesn't like that). She had to work all day and return today. We made homemade pizzas with the last of the picked green bell peppers (we may get more after this recent rain), and other organic toppings. She loved it. Of course we popped open a jar of homemade pizza sauce too.
I haven't pulled all of the cauliflower plants just yet. The recent rain, and hot days have given us a few more nice heads. I made a dish with spinach, a few eggs, a bit of cheese, garlic, and chicken. Delicious! I left the chicken out until the end, so I could divide it out for vegetarians first. What a hit! I just googled cauliflower and chicken dish and found one. The small bit of garlic with the cauliflower flavor was amazing. I steamed broccoli for the side dish. Yum.
Some of the tomato plants are getting pulled today. I let the chickens out to attack them for me, giving me no more excuses to leave them in any longer. However, they left me some tomatoes.
Hubby has been working way too much overtime. I have been completely forgetting my "nurse" responsibilities. Like taking his blood pressure when he gets home.
