Oh, man, it's been wet around here. Some of my Marin neighbors haven't fared so well during the torrential downpours and wind storms that kept Cranky and me locked inside over New Year's Eve.
The store where I bought my camera (and where Cranky just bought me a tripod for Christmas) was flooded by four feet of water; probably huge losses.
But we're safe and snug at home. Today we'll make a soup of black-eyed peas, leftover frozen ham, and a bunch of collard greens. For luck. I do feel lucky, to tell the truth.
And look at this: I still have tomatoes, on January first! They're not lovely tomatoes, to be sure, and the vines look terrible. But how amazing. So, for Weekend Herb Blogging (thanks, Kalyn), I present Bean Sprout and the Bedraggled Tomaters. (You can actually consider tomato leaves to be an herb; add one or two to tomato sauce while it's simmering for some bosky punch — look that up, Biggles — and then remove them if you can still find them.)
