Rhubarb farming

I like that rhubarb has a silent h in it. Sometimes I want to pronounce that h. R-hubarb. Say it with me. Speaking of silent h, I realized this morning that in my head, yogurt should be spelled yoghurt. But that's not the proper way to spell it, at least not according to the Mozilla spell-check. But I like it better. It looks more...ethnic. Yoghurt. So there. Anyway, what I came to say was that we harvested our second crop of r-hubarb today. Mostly because it was shading the oregano and squishing the carrots, not because we needed r-hubarb right at this moment. So I chopped it up, measured it, and put it in the freezer in a labelled bag. And tonight we went to the Hillhurst-Sunnyside farmer's market and got raspberries. They're laid out on a cookie sheet in the freezer. I'm looking forward to a bounty of fruit this winter.

If there was a "like" button on Blogger I would have hit it twice. I'm enjoying r-hubarb and new breakfasts too!

I have always thought that oregano should be spelled oh-regano. I propose a toast to the silent "h".

Hi Kirstin,
Thanks for the mention! Look forward to hearing more about your Jasper jaunt. I have the same breakfast as you except with Dorset Cereal - do you have that over there? - and yogurt & fruit or honey.
Hope you're doing well. Annie x
