I didn’t get the memo, but apparently it was “wear silly things on your head day” at our house yesterday.
The cutting garden was mostly a success. Going out a couple times a week and picking a bucket full of flowers has been fun. All of the seeds came up and grew beautifully, but not all of the flowers proved to be good cutting flowers.
The mixed packet of specialty cosmos turned out to be one of my favorites. The shell, variegated, and double ruffled cosmos are beautiful and they last 4 to 5 days in a vase.
The zinnias did very well but I don’t think I’ll plant the smaller variety again. The big ones are just so much more impressive. The only seed packet I was really disappointed in was the “cutting garden” variety packet. The daisies, poppies, and other flowers looked great in the garden but they didn’t last an hour in a vase. I have so many plans for next year’s garden. Hopefully I can get on the ball early and plant sweet peas! I’m also envisioning rows of dahlias!
My husband has made B-B-Q pizza several times the last few months. He puts the pizza stone on the B-B-Q, rolls out the dough, puts on the toppings and then slides it onto the stone. It only takes about 7 min. to bake, and it tastes so good! He makes the dough the night before, and I’m responsible for the toppings. The one in the picture has small roasted potatoes, bacon crumbles, and roasted garlic. For the cheese I used aged white cheddar, and a little mozzarella.
Random question: When did loving someone come to mean, “making sure they are always happy and never feel bad about themselves.”?
