If symptomatic or having known contact with infection, TEST.

If positive, ISOLATE.

(And INFORM)

This post brought to you by the news of people I care about being reinfected by careless visitors. Don’t be those people, people.

Him: He needs the ceremony.
Me: I didn't realize cats were religious.
Him: Ironically, they can be very dogmatic.

Second big basil harvest of the year. About 11 packed cups of leaves, most of which I vacuum sealed and froze for when Val has time to make bunches of pesto.

Local possum stays up for one last snack before bed.

Yep. Basically died since yesterday. It looked unhealthy this morning.

3 solid hours of gardening, followed by a bit of a pro forma run. Lots of propagation work, some up-potting, some planting, and a spot of mowing. Can’t mow too much while we wait for the bulbs to die back, but I tidied up some edges.

Cherry tomatoes continue to trickle in, as we wait for the more slicers and the romas to ripen.

I think the zucchini is about done - squash vine borers are killing off chunks at a time. I’m leaving it as a trap crop top protect the cucumbers out back.

Step-son just unlocked the door, came in, did not acknowledge my presence, grabbed a package and his testosterone injection gear and left. Did he just realize I found out he lied about totaling his car not being his fault?

I am requiring myself to write all six #skybreach novels in a row, before I release the first one. No off-track novels. The project excites me, so that's fine.

This short break I'm taking (after book 3) is so I can write a #prohibitionorcs novella. I want to do an orc tale every year, it's cool.

Which means, by definition, that this thing is a NOVELLA. Even if it's 47,000 words and still has another 15k to go. It must be a novella, because I'm not writing any off-track novels this year. It is not permitted. :flan_heckk:​ FORBIDDEN. :flan_sign:

Dammit.

I've now got two fresh, home grown zucchinis. Suggestions for eating them other than sautéing in butter with garlic and sprinkling parmesan on top?

Wrenlings have fledged, so no more pictures :( On the brighter side I can now replant and weed some things which I’d been holding off on because I was worried about the birds.

Swiss chard was planted last fall and was a complete nothing burger until recently. Peppers are Numex Joe E Parker sown in January and planted in containers Mar 12 the day after our actual last frost (which was later than usual)
