Green and sweet snow day
"How about staying inside
today and taking it easy?" said the Red-shouldered Hawk. After seeing
how much effort it took to push my way through 8.5 inches of snow just
to do my morning chores, I decided the hawk was wise.
Indoors, my winter-mood-stabilization projects are greening up nicely. The Mars Seedless grape cuttings I started rooting six weeks ago are opening their leaves, as is the little fig tree I
left inside for the winter. In contrast, Reliance grape cuttings
started at the same time are still dormant above ground, which actually
is a good thing --- the longer cuttings work on growing roots instead of leaves, the better.
When I got sick of
writing, I headed to the kitchen. How about some maple syrup snow ice
cream? 2 tablespoons of milk, two tablespoons of cream, 1.5 tablespoons
of maple syrup, and a big bowl of snow per serving. Delicious!
