Extreme Edamame
Last week I spent about an hour picking the pods
from the edamame plants in my garden. Then I spent
about three hours shelling and blanching and
freezing, oh my. It's actually quite astonishing
how very small the harvest was, when compared
to the lushness of the plants in the ground.

Extreme Garden
The upper picture was taken at about 10:30 a.m. yesterday.
That's my neighbor on his little combination tiller/frontloader.
The lower picture was taken at 1 p.m.
The garden is now slightly wider and twice as long.
I'm a farmer! Heh.

Oooh that looks good.

BTW, I got The End of Overeating from the library - I had it on Request and it showed 302 requests ahead of me, so I'm not sure why I received it two days later.

Anyway, it's really fascinating. I hadn't expected to learn all that much from it, because he mostly writes about restaurant food, which you know I never eat anyway - but I'm still finding some interesting ideas and some revelations.
