BIG news over here, people. Like, HUGE! I have a tree, and it grew berries.
And then I picked the berries and made them into tarts.
I even had this idea that it would be really excellent to eat the yardtarts in the yard, underneath the tree where the berries grew, but my husband pointed out that that might be a little cruel… kind of like eating bacon in front of a pig. So we ate them on the porch. And they were delicious.
THRILLING, right? Okay, maybe not so much… but you’ve got to admit: there’s something undeniably cool about growing something you can eat and then eating it, isn’t there? My next project is an apricot tree. I’ve already planted five pits.
And even though, right now, they’re doing an excellent impersonation of an empty pot of dirt, if we all just BELIEVE HARD ENOUGH, I know they’re going to grow. I’ll keep you posted!
But wait! That’s not all!! Exciting fruit-related news aside, I also have EXCITING book-related news… except I can’t share it just yet. Sorry. That was awfully anti-climactic, wasn’t it? God! WHY do people do that?! Like, if you can’t say what the news is, WHY BOTHER TELLING PEOPLE YOU HAVE NEWS in the first place, right? Sigh. You hate me now, don’t you? I can hardly blame you.
Anyway, I swear… I will tell you everything just as soon as I’m able. And, until then, I’m off to watch my dirt.
Have a great day, everyone!
