Hump Day

Here we are mid. week already, finally (for now) the rain has stopped.
 Yesterday after noon the rain was intermittent,the sun was  brightness at 6pm.
I did manage to squeeze in some weeding in the after noon and that was a pleasure, even under a sprinkle of rain. The herbs and pea's are thriving.
I have begun to make some pesto's including this one from
Pea Shoot Pesto

2 cups, packed, pea shoots

1/2 cup toasted walnuts

1 clove of garlic, roughly chopped

juice of 1/2 lemon

1/8 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup olive oil


Place the pea shoots, walnuts, garlic, lemon juice and Parmesan in the bowl of a food processor. Process until it forms a rough paste. Pour in the olive oil and process until it forms a spreadable paste or add more oil for a pourable sauce. Add salt and adjust seasonings to taste.
Anne Marie over at has promissed a new pesto for the end of the week, looking forward to checking her recipe out.
Last night I made a real easy real yummy pasta salad that we enjoyed with our panini's. The spinach and tomato paninis were enjoyable, but I know they will be better with fresh from our garden tomatoes.
Hell everything is better fresh from the garden.
Little hen went for a stroll outside the barn yesterday, it was fun to watch her forage for bugs and snails. She pecked around outside the barn door for an hour then she wondered back into her stall, hopped up onto Minni's water and took a big drink.
