|Obviously garlic scapes are the answer to all of life's woes.|
I'm going to do that annoying thing where I put up pictures that basically have nothing to do with the post's context whatsoever except that they were also used to distract me from the issues at hand, so I'm hoping they do the same for you.
|Forget your worries and look at this crazy ass garlic.|
Because who has time to stress out about an interview tomorrow, a big plant sale this weekend, setting up a new hydroponic crop next week, a different in-person interview next week, finals in two weeks, graduation in three weeks and having to murder at least two people to get registered for a fall biology class when the garlic is scaping?
|Look into my eyes and tell me what your fucking problem is.|
At least that's my reasoning anyway.
I tried to convince Bubba that garlic scapes were the answer to life's mysteries last night when I proposed that I make a frittata with them, but then he activated his gag reflex and shunned eggs forever because he's even wussier than I am about eggs and so instead we had garlic scape pesto which was fine but WHOA HOLY is it hot.
|Always surprises me how hot garlic can be. And how dragon-like my breath can become. Rowr.|
This is how I cope. Don't you judge me.
|Just eat this, watch the TeeVee and try not to fucking freak out for a second.|
He bought DVDs.
Because *this series* is only available on iTunes otherwise and we...um...don't *do* iTunes in this house and because he knew it was the best way to keep me from completely losing it and because he loves me (or fears me?) he bought the complete Star Wars saga on Blu-ray.
|And for that - you don't have to eat eggs.|
You should love him, too. Otherwise all of your lives might be at risk.
Hey! Also look at what the garden's doing. That's a good distraction, too.
|Rocky Top Mix is happening.|
|Artichokes and onions are, like, MAKE DINNER FOR THE NEIGHBORS and shit.|
|The Red Baron onions are officially always going to grow in my garden yay.|
|The bees are working.|
|I'm picking bouquets when I get stressed, so, you know, every 5-10 minutes. I'm running out of jars.|
|The poppy field is also working.|
|The cucumbers basically suck.|
|The lettuce and alyssum are growing together just as I tell other people to do.|
|I have so many limes on this one wee tree that I'm concerned for its safety.|
|There are so many grapes on the vines that I'm concerned for the fence's integrity.|
|Oh yeah - AND THE TOMATOES HAVE SET FLOWERS.|
I hope you are as distracted as I am. Go have a good day, you. And quit freaking the fuck out, already. You're scaring people.
