§ This week was a nice sneak preview of summer. Every day was in the mid-to-high-70s and sunny. Most days Caroline and I would be outside from the time we got home from work until sunset. We got a lot of yard work done—weeding, edging, expanding the garden beds. We went through five yards of compost in two days.

§ The seeds I planted a couple of weeks ago have all sprouted—first the tomatoes and tomatillos, then peas and basil. Finally, a few days later, all of the peppers popped up.

I also started some summer squash and groundcherry seeds. I am especially excited about the later after eating them for the first time last summer.

§ Until now, you have only known Winter Blog. Summer Blog will have much more gardening. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

§ Succession episode three!

I don’t think there is anything I can say that wouldn’t be a massive spoiler but… wow—watch it.

§ Recipes

  • We made pizza in the Ooni more times than I care to admit.
  • Earlier this week, I purchased a small kaffir lime plant which prompted me to make Kenji López-Alt’s beef with basil recipe again. Adding the lime leaves made a bigger difference than I would have expected!
