Sunday Bill and I biked out to the farm (mom came and picked up the kids) so that we could have a family dinner. My uncle Albert was home from Ottawa for the weekend and mom wanted us all to get together. Before we ate, Bill and I took some time to pick a few things. Starting with a garbage bag of basil and 150 +/- pounds of tomatoes. Then we went on to a few eggplants, jalapeno peppers, cucumbers, and yet more broccoli. I have to admit that I am getting slightly tired of broccoli. But we do freeze some and it goes very nice in stir fries that we often have in the winter. When Bill gets home I will see if he can help me get the wee video that we took posted. I am a techno weenie and don't want to do it myself. Besides, he has the cable that I need.
I mentioned this mass of tomatoes that we had to people around the lunch table at work, and one woman suggested that I start selling them. I had brought a few extra to share and they all exclaimed at how good they looked and tasted. I am not quite sure how I would feel about adding "tomato broker" to my list of skills.
Speaking of work......Moth update......
After meeting with the pest control guy, the course of action decided upon is to bag all of the yarn and add a fumigation strip to each of the bags. The fog (as they call it) only kills the adults and not larva or egg. The egg hatch in between 5 to 10 days depending on conditions and the fumigation strips will kill the larva. Then all cupboards and any cracks where eggs may have fallen need to be sprayed and washed. I can't start this process until we get the strips and the pest guy was fresh out of them. So hopefully by the end of the week I will be able to start on demothafication of the Fiber Arts studio.
In the meantime, I am off to deal with a few more tomatoes before I go get the babe at pre-K. Oh yeah. I forgot to mention that there is at least as many tomatoes still in the garden. Maybe I should reconsider becoming a tomato broker.
