What I've Been Up To

or, rather,

Where I've Been.

For this:

(in Bethel, not in Anchorage)

That included this:

(can I keep him?)

Followed by the enjoyment of this:

(I only harvested a rock, so I didn't break any of the rules)

at the Botanical Garden, where they have the following:

Zombie tulips (really.. have you seen a more undead flower?)

Me, photographing the zombie tulips (and normal tulips, seen in the background)

Gender normative flowers (can't we escape this dichotomy anywhere?!)

And what visit to Anchorage would be complete without the Saturday Market? (two words: salmon quesadillas)

So, that's what's been up with the lack of posting my postings.

More Food!

Okay, so I know that you're supposed to pick & eat the broccoli before it blooms. Well, I know that now, after receiving sage advice from Facebook friends. Because when I have a garden related question, to whom do I turn?

BUT - and here's where my buddies from afar were wrong:

Broccoli that has already begun to flower is actually still very good. Also, did you know that broccoli could be so pretty? I bet more people would eat broccoli if it came with its own bouquet. Maybe not. But consider this a Public Service Announcement: broccoli in bloom = most definitely edible (and still yum).
