Highlight: Highlights on a rainy Monday are sometimes hard to find. For me, a supper of Portuguese bean soup with authentic Portuguese-style linguiça from Fall River, MA was a treat. Perhaps a little heavy for this time of year, dearest wife was only mildly satisfied with the dish. Nevertheless, it reminded me of childhood days spent with my cousin Emma and her family. Let’s just call it Portuguese comfort food.
Someday, I will show you how to lift your breakfast to new heights with linguiça and scrambled eggs.

Plantings: Nothing to report
Harvest: Now the gardens are beginning to increase their output. Today, lovely spouse picked 6 okra pods, 3 jalapenos, 2 cherry tomatoes, and two regular tomatoes. That may not seem like much, but we are now nearing critical mass on okra and jalapenos. The plants are loaded with ripening pods and peppers. It’s time to prepare for freezing and pickling.
