GARDENING & POETRY NEWS
which preambles with this conversation du jour:
The enchanting 5-year-old Cerise in a purr-fect princess dress: Eileen, where are the bad people in your dungeon?
Moi: Only good people are allowed at Galatea....
And then I served Cerise's parents (heh) a Greek dish I made for the first time: a summer "stew" of watermelon, French feta cheese and mint.
Mint -- that I picked from Moi's own garden! To wit:
THE CITY SLICKER'S HARVEST TALLY, to date
35 sprigs of parsley
3 yellow squashes
42 sprigs of basil
2 Santa Rosa plums
2 lemon cucumbers
10 sprigs of mint
