2020, still.

Not really the best year on record is it. This opening sentence reminds me of blogs I used to read while I was still blogging and reading blogs, when I would think "what are you writing for?" I guess it's more productive than watching TV (remember TV?). But this, whatever it is...I don't really understand.

2020.

It's a telling barometer of social media trends that I find this blog to be the "least social" place to put a thought into words. Do blogs even still exist? Can't be bothered to check.

The North Garden is in mostly full...bloom? Swing? What do gardens do. There are lots of edible things out there. Questions to self: 1) what to do with 409 radishes? They are delicious with a little butter and salt, but I fear there is a limit to that appeal. 2) how much arugula and/or spinach pesto can you make? This seems to be the quickest way to dramatically reduce the shelf space that leafy greens consume, but I struggle to find uses for it other than pasta or sandwiches. Yes ok.
