Speaking of book group, next month's selection is Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky. I just finished it, and it is my favorite book of the last 6 months, at least. The story behind the book is also remarkable, in that the manuscript was unpublished until 60 years after her death in Auschwitz.
The main reason, as I believe I've mentioned, why I'm posting less is that it is high-season for gardening. All my veggies are planted into the actual dirt in the actual ground except for the tomatoes. I'm thinking they'll go in Friday.
Here's what we have this year:Potatoes
Bok choi ("baby" variety, very annoying. Wanted "adult")
Carrots (haven't sprouted yet)
Strawberries (free plants, whee)
Tomatoes (5 kinds)
Butternut squash (of course)
Basil (purple and regular)
Parsley (about to sprout, I'm sure)
Spinach (unsure whether they are up, as I don't know what they look like)
Whew. That explains why I'm a little tired. Everything except 8 of the 21 tomato plants were started from seed.
