Good news and bad news
growing veggies, yay!
cooking them, yay! (burning them,
ruining pots. Boo.)
I have good news and bad news regarding the garden (I’m sure you’ve been dying for an update). Well, despite the ravaging effects of roly-polys, stink bugs and rampant grass growth, the garden is, in fact, growing real fruits and veggies!

Here’s the bad news:
In my overzealous attempt to whip up a batch of old-school black-eyed peas, I attempted to cook them without actually having enough of the little suckers. The results were, well, less than appetizing. So, of course, I took a picture. I’ll link to it, though. That way you can take a gander at your own risk. Just be glad you can’t smell them, too. It’s amazing how burnt black-eyed peas and a poopy diaper have many of the same olfactory consequences.
Here they are. The green thing is a spent jalapeno pepper. I’m probably gonna have to throw that pot away. (By the way, the picture isn’t compressed all the way, so you can really get a good look at the mess. Luckily, though, I didn’t hurt myself with this cooking adventure.
