My apartment manager plants pretty flowers in the front yard each year. Then she sits under the tree, admiring her handiwork as she talks to passers-by.
Next up, my first ever taste of Limburger Cheese! Last weekend I was doing a Tarot reading at MaiFest and the client's mom brought a Limburger and onion sandwich for us to try. We were a little apprehensive as we've all heard the stories of the smell and such, right? But it smelled fine and darned if it didn't taste pretty good too! Another check mark off the list of "things to try in this lifetime."
After the cheese-tasting, my booth partner went and got us a mountain of chips. No kidding, this thing was about a foot tall. Freshly sliced and fried, homemade potato chips. Yum! Didn't even miss the salt.
My booth partner also bought this Pitcher plant. Isn't it cool? They're carnivorous and there was an entire booth full of them - a real life Little Shop of Horrors! The pitchers catch rain water and have a sweet aroma which attracts bugs. Once the bugs are in the pitcher they fall into the water and the plant digests them. Glad I'm much smarter than a bug! If you want to get your very own
man oops bug eating plant you can contact Bob & Billie Joe Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org. They're not allowed to ship them (postal regulations) but they can tell you when they'll be in your area.
And finally this is me planting tomatoes at my mom's house last week. The "look" is because I hate having my picture taken, but mom insisted no one would believe I did it if there wasn't "proof." We also planted celery, peppers, eggplant and something else I forget. Next week we'll plant the seeds and by mid summer she'll have plenty of fresh, organic veggies to enjoy. Hmm... I might just have to go over and swipe a few :)
