Last very warm day here for awhile—tonight we go back to having San Diego’s summer, with warmish days and cool nights. Last night it rained, but they’ve taken the rain out of the forecast until next Thurs., followed by another dry spell. So I have to water every day, lest any new tomatoes get blossom-end rot again. The tomatoes are ripening fast & furious, but I wish I could let them fully ripen on the vine. Instead, I’ve sort of been playing chicken with the squirrels and snatching them once they turn mostly red or even orange. Got three ripe ones on the vine and about 25 or so in varying stages of green-ness and size. The green ones that got shaken off the plant in the storm are resolutely refusing to ripen on the sill, so I put them in a paper bag with a ripe banana…or so I thought…turns out it’s a plantain that somebody put back with the conventional bananas at WF (so I paid only 37 cents for it). One of the green ones in the bag seems to have shown the tiniest hint of blush, so it’s back on the sill—along with 7 fully-ripe and one almost-ripe ones.
Slowly eating my way through the gigantic zucchini Bob brought home from one of his patients. Grilled a couple of slices that were left over after spiralizing a chunk of it, and cooked the zoodles with some marinara sauce & Parm-Regg. Also sliced and grilled a small eggplant. “Umami,” my @$$--I’m jonesing for meat. Red meat.
Really, really sore from yesterday’s workout—and have another training session tomorrow. Trying to somewhat reverse my kyphosis and keep it from becoming hyperkyphosis (hunchback). Sitting and standing up straight is torture on my neck & shoulders, but that’s what both my PCP and trainer want me to do. Ugh.
