I stopped at the big warehouse store on my way home today. Wandering down the rice isle, I was in the land of plenty. Clearly, the reported rice shortages of last month have resolved themselves, or people have forgotten all about their fear now that the next American Idol is soon to be revealed. Perhaps this would be a good time to grab a few hundred pounds more, hmmmm?
Speaking of food, I took a walk through the garden this afternoon. Sprouts have come up where I expect broccoli, green beans, and corn. I’ve got freshly harvested spinach in the kitchen just waiting for dinnertime. My seedlings are still on the windowsill, longing to make the move outside. The annual herbs have returned to life with surprising vitality. So far, so good.
