This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

cheers to the first cuke of the season!!!

summer garden 124

A pretty little North Carolina Pickling cucumber is my first this year. As usual.... And what to do to celebrate the first cucumber? A martini of course.

(my nails look like I've been digging potatoes! yes.)

Shaken or stirred?

OK, so a friend of mine (who is a prof at MIT and a studied mixologist - I believe him) says martinis and other clear drinks should be stirred NOT shaken as Bond preferred. He stirs 30 times (very patient). Says this keeps it clear, I think maybe he had other reasons too, but I focus more on what to put in it.

I sometimes stir, sometimes shake. The shaking has a nice sound. Stirring is easier.

This one was stirred. About 10 times. With the cuke on the green mermaid pick.
