This and That at our house

This and That
Some odds and ends from what’s going on at my house.
I am writing a book full of mom tips – soon to be published, I hope. More later when I have the contract in my hot little hands.
The marauding squirrel has returned, sorry to report. He (she?) dug up a pepper plant from our garden and it looked pretty dead, but I replanted it and watered it. The squirrel again dug up the pepper plant and left it a foot away in the dirt. Tis truly dead this time.
I feel like a pioneer woman when I harvest potatoes from our garden. This final batch of Yellow Finn organic heirloom potatoes was grown in a five gallon pail, in the “pail method” which I describe in an earlier post. My husband grilled steak outside and I dug up some taters. These are good boiled or thick sliced and cooked in olive oil.
My hubby and I watched a movie “The Conspirator” and found it fascinating, as Mary Surratt is on trial in a military court for involvement in the assassination of President Lincoln. Will she hang? I won’t say here, but wow, her lawyer was a brave man to defend her.
