Oh my goodness those are lovely photos, Doe Eyes.  Nest contents prettier than any dyed easter eggs.  Spring fully sprung in your neck of the woods I see.

They are indeed lovey photos, Doe.
We are "birders" and maintain a safe place for all birds. Birds that are usually migratory have stayed all winter.


Here in Central CA "spring" was only interuppted a few times.
While we did have a couple of weeks of  hard frost, we have had a constant "spring" soon to become Summer.
We put tomato/pepper/eggplant in the garden in March!

Who says  "climate change" is not a good thing?

Spring has come late here in Southern Ontario but this morning lying in bed I could hear flock after flock of geese flying right over our house. Usually I hear them coming home in late April but somehow they knew to hold back until now. This morning the sun is so bright its hard to see around you without squinting. Our tulips are up and the trees are budding. The little chipmunks and black squirrels are running around the yard and driving our cat crazy. It's going to be a lovely day.

I don't really have  a recipe, but this is how you do it......take whatever vegetables and herbs you want in your frittata and sauté them in a little olive oil until they are tender, in another bowl, mix 5 eggs and a little half and half.  You can use milk instead, whatever you like, as if you were making scrambled eggs.  Pour the egg mixture over the vegetable layer in the pan over medium heat, don't stir, and as the eggs start to cook, lift the sides gently and allow the uncooked eggs to run under.   When the frittata is almost set, sprinkle the top with whatever cheese you like, and put under the broiler until the top is cooked and browning a little.  That's it.  The one pictured had potatoes, onions, asparagus, and swiss cheese, but you can use whatever vegetables you like and whatever cheese goes good with them.

Why are you having trouble with your garden?   The only thing we seem to be having trouble with, and have so for the past two years, is potatoes.  They rotted in the ground.  I guess we will have to buy potatoes again this year.  Oh well.

Birth of Jam 


This weekend, daughter in law, daughter and I made peach, fig, and raspberry-strawberry jam.  Above are the beautiful berries, exuberantly bubbling in their molten syrup, almost ready to ladle in pretty mason jars.

Almost titled as photo guessing game  ("What is it?").  Depending on how shot is framed mentally one could be looking at laparascopic camera image from a medical textbook, or snapshot of paintpot at Yellowstone.  Or sci-fi film, oozing alien invader. :-)

Yek-
That was my very thought before I read your caption.

I've had good luck with nectarines this year, with peaches coming on now.

Your combo sounds delicious!

Why are you having trouble with your garden? 

Beats the hell out of me!   I have one jalapeno pepper plant that just sits. It's green, but that is it. It doesn't grow; it doesn't bloom; it has one pepper about 1 inch long that sits there.
Tomatoes are OK.  Squash so-so.  No beans; just stunted vines.

This year is the first year in the past ten years that we have actually had nectarines and peaches. Spring storms usually knock off the buds, or  usually just fall when they're green, or the squirrlls eat them before they're ripe.

I'm guessing it's because we never had a "winter" this year.  Aside from a couple of weeks of severe freeeze, we've had no winter, and little rain.

Also... we usually have a minor problem with wasps and yellowjacket hornets.  No big deal, but they are a usual pest.
This year I have not seen even one wasp or yellowjacket.  Also ants.  This time of year we have a huge black ant population, but this year hardly any.

Yes, looks like a scarily inflamed and diseased duodenem or something.  Gaak.  :-)
Raspberry Strawberry was just scrumptious.  The peaches were a little underripe, so that was a little disappointing but still delicious compared to off the shelf stuff.  Hope your peaches ripen to perfection.  

We sampled fig jam the same day, to accompany Manchego cheese, salamis, goat cheese with honey, crackers, crusty bread along with copious vino to reward selves for laboring at tasks that befit righteous women.  Lol.

My humble apologies, Yekyua.  That was out of order.
 I appreciate your banter.
My peaches are coming along; fighting the birds for them.

I'd LOVE to try your entire Greek/Mediterranean- fushion food party. Sounds delicious!

One thing that my garden did produce is a few eggplant.  I LOVE EGGPLANT!

I make a sort a  baba ghanouch/hummus fusion thing. Intense flavors roasting eggplant, onions, garlic,  peppers. Mash 'em all together with a little sea salt, some chickpeas and EVOO in a food processor. 
Toast some flat bread or pita and dig!

100% vegan if that matters to you.

Accepted and thank you - consider it forgotten, Driver.
It's nice to keep this board as a rancor-free refuge.  

As for eggplant, the baba ganoush sounds delicious (lots of garlic please), but that's the only way I like eggplant.  Oh, and in ratatouille.

No such thing as too much garlic!

I'm rather disappointed that I didn't get excess eggplant that I usually get.
I also make Eggplant Parmesian that I put in the freezer for later.

Not this year.

What a beautiful site!   I've seen a similar site when making raspberry jelly, when you are at the stage where you cannot stop the boiling even if you are stirring it.  After a couple of minutes at this stage, then you turn off the heat, and pour it into sterile jars and seal.  Delicious!

This is the first year that we aren't growing eggplant, which I use to make eggplant parmesan, ratatouille, and baba ganoush.  My favorite being ratatouille, with all the other fresh garden ingredients like peppers, squash, onions, tomatoes, etc.  I will probably regret not growing it, but it seemed that we didn't have time to get a lot of things in the garden that we normally grow.  What is there, though, is doing great!

Enjoy your beautiful garden and all of its bounty, lucky lady.   
We've all known people like Trump...and Trumpie - that creep you can never trust because they are always looking for an angle, a way to cheat people out of their money. A way to reneg on a contract, to not pay in full......they are con artists. Trump does this kind of thing because he believes that because he's very wealthy, the rules of decency do not apply to him and of course, he can threaten to sue anyone. When poor people act like Trump - well they do it because they are scammers. They have no ethics in business or in life.
