2009 First Harvest

The rhubarb's been calling for my attention for a few days now and this morning I made the first harvest from our own yard of this season - 1 lb. 9 oz. after it was all ready for cooking. I'm making fool with it and the last of the rhubarb from the freezer, which should work as breakfasts and desserts for the weekend. :)

2008 Totals from our yard: 10 1/2 lb. strawberries, 5 1/4 lb. rhubarb, 2 lb. cherries, about 30 tomatoes

It's May Faire at school today and I hope the sprinkles currently coming from the sky decide to stop. The first case of suspected swine flu happened in Lane County yesterday and I keep wondering if May Faire may be the last big community gathering for our school for awhile. Hopefully, the case at Harris Elem. (just a couple of miles from school) is a false alarm. Very difficult time of year for any school to be forced to close for two weeks.
