OUCH! Poison Ivy. One of the 'joys' of being out in nature. That, and wood ticks. Wear a cap, long pants, and a long sleeve shirt. On the other hand, I have to admit, the fresh blackberries are worth it.

Blueberries should be in season in another week or so. Cant' wait!!

Tomatoes! Glorious tomatoes! From my son-in-law's greenhouse, they are delicious.

And, I picked a gallon of black raspberries yest. Not my own, but from a "secret" spot down the road. I'll probably get poison ivy, but it's worth it.

I think sugar snap peas and snow peas have to be picked very early in the season. I've been getting great ones all spring, but the last batch I bought 2 weeks ago were semi-stringy.  (Mostly okay, but maybe 2 or 3 stringy pods in a cupful.  [shrug])

I gave-up eating "edible" pods after trying them once or twice.  Can't abide those strings.

Been eating edible pod peas lately (out of my garden). Love 'em, but dang, they are stringy, despite my extraction attempts. Reminds me of my grandmother's "string beans".

Daniel, I always knew you were out standing in your field.

I love the midwestern thunderstorms. I remember as a boy standing in the cornfield as a storm approached. The smell of rain. The electricity, making my hair stand upright. Mo mother telling me to get inside....

A vicious storm passed through right at supper time last night. Knocked the power out for 3 hours. My planned spaghetti meal has been postponed 'til tonight. I made a salad instead. I eat a lot of salads this time of year--all the greens come right out of my garden. Using a variety of dressings changes the taste considerably. I make much of my own dressings, but admittedly, I enjoy store-bought. So shoot me.

Love garlic. Use it in Italian, Chinese, Mexican, etc. I agree it's a pain to peel the cloves and finely mince each one. I have a garlic press, but rarely use it, as it just doesn't seem to get it quite right.

Don't know about kim chee (chi), but I do know about garlic. Grow it, eat it, love it. But it's a pain to prepare for consumption.
