Thanks for the lovely post Laura. Two things: I remember the first time I naively volunteered to do the work portion of my farm co-op memebership digging potatoes. I have never been so sore or tired in my life. My farmer-supervisor was incredibly patient as she hoed 5 rows to my one. Second: you have a neighbor who grows walnuts? Do you know you can make a delicious Italian spirit from the green (unripe) walnuts? Nocino. You'll find many recipes on line but I have one if you need one (and I'm looking for an east coast walnut source). This is going to be a fun week!

Thanks, Stacey. I did not know about Nocino, but I ask Don about his walnut crop next time I see him. (I have no idea when walnuts ripen.) I'd love your recipe, too. (I wonder if anything can be made from horse chestnuts. I have a giant tree that drops them all over the yard. They hurt like hell when you step on them.)

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
