7:50 and almost time to have breakfast. I am working on the summer time table now so when we get up at 6 a.m. I get dressed and head for the garden. Norman has his morning cup of coffee and then goes for his two mile walk. He has done this ever since he had his quadruple bypass surgery and will do it as long as he can, it is the best thing to keep the heart healthy. I can’t drink coffee. I haven’t had a cup since my son was born in 1968, that was when the doctor convinced me it was the coffee that was triggering my colitis attacks. It has been the easiest solution to keeping that in check. My mother suffered from it for years and never connected her morning coffee to her problem. The doctor would not let me have any coffee in the hospital and at that time you were in the hospital a week to ten days. As soon as I got home I had a cup of coffee and that was followed in 20 minutes by a colitis attack so there was no question, the doctor had been right so that was my last cup of coffee and I have never missed it!
Today I fine dressed the tomatoes, onions, and brussel sprouts. That is hoeing in the aisles and taking out any stray weeds around the plants. I also took out any sucker on the tomatoes, glad I only have 15 tomato plants. Then I hoed the ends of the corn rows and my time was up. When Norman gets back from his walk he comes to the garden to get me for breakfast. I picked a rutabaga for dinner and I looked in on the peas. There were three pea pods ready so I picked those to put in with the sweet potatoes, rutabaga, and frozen peas. I cut those up into one to two inch cubes, drizzle olive oil one them to coat them well and sprinkle a little salt and basil on them and bake them for 30 to 40 minutes at 400 degrees turning them once half way through. I wanted to see if the pea pods were good that way or if I had to stir fry them. Now the oat meal is ready so I have go to breakfast. Have a good day.
