in which our plucky heroine maintains forward momentum...
because science comes in more than one flavor
My pal Ariadne is going to have a baby due this October, and so I figured it was time to get started making things for a gift basket... This is going to be a handknit wooly rainbow octopus rattle, and I am quite amused by the eight multicolored tentacles.
This is my first actual ever "harvest" of homegrown rhubarb... every prior year it was no bigger than a pipe cleaner, this one is about as big as a pencil. The strawberries are from the backyard. Not enough for a wee jar of jam, but I am thinking about stewing them into a spoonful of topping for some yoghurt...
It was a challenge to cook such a small amount, but this tiny bowl of rhubarb/strawberry sauce travelled zero food-miles in relation to Acorn Cottage. I intend to enjoy every teaspoonfull...
