This all came in the mail in one day! And no bills, I might add... :)
This is everything ordered this year. Truth be told, I didn't even "need" anything besides peas and bean seeds, but of course I'm always on the search for new varieties, and I order Brandywine every year, that's my one tomato I can't live without.
More bonus - the surprise for hubby! Hubby makes fantastic bubbly thin crispy pizzas already, but thanks to Jane's post over at Hard Work Homestead, I just HAD to let him try this pizza flour! He'll be very excited to be working with some pro supplies. I also ordered some mozzarella curd so we can have some family fun making mozzarella. We can't source unpasteurized milk here, so making it from the curd is the next best thing. I feel a project for the kids post coming on here...
With the kids in school yesterday and hubby gone with a friend biking, what's a newbie quilter girl to do? Find the nearest quilt shop and check it out! The guy in there was fantastic, talked to me for about an hour, gave me advice on machines (and they don't even sell them!) and technique, fabrics, local repair shop reputations, wow - I'll definitely be doing business with them. So anyone in the Virginia Beach area that is feeling a bit intimidated and shy by being new to the craft and going into a "real" shop, don't be... go see Jerry, he's great and will make you feel like a pro when you leave :)
Mama Pea, look away now... last night was Minnesota Fancy Nancy's standard of pot roast, veggies, baking powder biscuits and gravy. Haha, you know who you are, stop lurking and jump on here!
No, the 4 of us didn't eat this ALL - we ate mostly veggies as the meat was destined for the soup I'm making today for the freezer.
We are really hoping to get outside for a bit of cleaning up the ugly winter garden & yard, it's supposed to be 48-50º today, but as of 11 am there is still frost on the ground. I'm sure it will warm up a bit about 1-2 pm, but then we'll be fighting that limited winter daylight thing. I'm getting anxious to be out there working and enjoying mild temps as spring is very short here and it heats up unbearably very quickly. We pretty much go from winter to humid, hot summer. The neighbors will think I'm nuts as usual working out there when it's so "cold"... if you ask me 52-62º is about perfect for outdoor work, so I'll jump at any chance we get.
