Thanks for that information, Chris. I will have to start eating/drinking more of poms to see if I can get my cholesterol into a healthier range.
We put a pomegranate in our daily smoothies, after my partner got a cholesterol warning. It works better than cholesterol medicines and it tastes better!
Randy, I love pomegranates. Sorry to learn you didn't enjoy them. Brussel sprouts on the stem taste wonderfully fresh and delightful. I grew them when the kids still lived at home and planted some in the new greenhouse. They attracted aphids creating a chore of giving them a shower every morning to get as many off as possible. Sadly, I used chemicals in those days. Let's hope sprouts grow up free of those pesky critters.
When I had chemo and radiation, my dietician recommended pom juice as well as a lot of other new things for me. It was a treat finding new flavors.
When I was in Sacramento 10 days ago, we went to mammoth farmers market. I bought some delicious strawberries, a stalk of Brussels sprouts, and a pomegranate. As a first timer, I had no idea how to "prepare" or eat the pom. I didn't know one just ate the seeds. I wasn't impressed, and it'll be the last time I eat one.
I planted the first seeds of all kinds of vegetables on Sept 8 & 9. We had our first salad 28 days later. We have all kinds of lettuces, kales, spinach, and radishes.
The Zucchini has many buds developing nicely. The Meyer lemon progresses with blossoms and nine tiny lemons. The beans have dozens of blossoms as do the three tomatoes.
Something is pollinating the plants, I see no insects. There are fruit flies where I buried some Concord grape seeds. They must be the pollinators. Laura found some tiny art brushes and I use them to pollinate now. Just making sure we get some produce.
There is a small solar powered water pump that creates falling water to aerate the 500+ gallons of water in the tank. I don't have a chair in the greenhouse yet, but will find a nice soft, comfortable little one to fit in a corner (what corner? it is a geodesic dome),
I agree, Daniel. In a similar vein, there's nothing worse than getting stuck by a blab on a plane.
My Amtrak food was pretty good, although I didn't each that much of it. Too expensive. It's also hard to really savor your food when you have to converse with fellow tablemates. It's difficult to concentrate.
Cute cartoon, Carl.
Don't you hate it when this happens?
Assortment of delicious chip toppings at my local market: guacamole, tropical, pico de gallo, and green salsa. I have yet to sample the green salsa, as the others are so good, it's hard to branch out!
