Lovely and amazing

The first turkey egg! So beautiful and speckledy. The foodie in me wonders what it tastes like.

Today has been a busy day. There was a lot to do in the office; also, tomato, pepper, and eggplant seeds needed to be started. I made some headway here and there. On top of that, our yearly Trees of Antiquity order showed up. The s.o. and I planted:

• Three apples - Winesap, Calville Blanc, Monark
• A Smyrna quince
• Two Seckel pears

It was a really beautiful afternoon, and the s.o. and I enjoyed working out in the yard together. I daresay it was as romantic as anything we've done. It's a great feeling to build something for posterity together.
