The job report for May was dismal. But! On the other hand, unemployment is down, so something must be going right -- right?
Nah. It's just because I've used up all my unemployment benefits, like so many other people I know whose jobs were, um, "disappeared," my beloved co-cook and husband included. We're simply not on the rolls of the unemployed anymore, so the numbers magically have gone down.
Lucky us, though. We decided to call this "retirement," and to spend way too much time puttering in the garden.
The tomatoes are looking good, but are still green, so we're still buying red cherry tomatoes at the market. However, our first harvest of the spring made it to the table today (and it will make many more appearances).
Feast your eyes on home-grown microgreens. These are ordinary red radish sprouts, probably less than a week old. Beloved co-cook and husband crafted this salad in about five minutes, and right after lunch he went out on the patio and planted more radish seeds for next week's salad.
The seeds were ten cents a packet, and each packet should grow hundreds of sprouts.
Who needs employment?
