sigh not really....I'll probably add a few monarchs flitting about and call it finished finally! Must say it's worth the deltoid pain...I do like to lie on my sofa and stare up at my "sky" ceiling...
hmmm...ran back in grabbed a bag and filled it with turnips, mustards, collards, carrots and a head of lettuce....good tidings of joy! Before I left lessons that night Tera's teacher's wife came in smiling with a tray of cut up seasoned veggies ready for roasting and explanation of what she planned to do with the rest of the veggies the next day. I'm still smiling!
I'm also still getting a crop of figs....unbelievable...even with the cold weather the "Alma" variety of fig is still bearing. Duly impressed....

Now here is a spicy pecan recipe for all my garden club friends. I got it from Martha Stewart's Christmas Cookbook. Luckily it's simple for Martha. I didn't have to travel or rob anyone to get the ingredients.
1 tblsp coarse salt
2 tblsp cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 cup sugar
2 large egg whites
5 cups pecan halves
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Combine salt, cayenne, paprika and sugar.
whisk egg whites until foamy.
whisk in spice mixture.
stir in pecans and coat well
spread on baking sheets
bake 15 minutes
reduce heat to 250 degrees F.
Rotate sheets in oven and cook until nuts are browned and fragrant about 10 minutes more.
Transfer to another sheet of parchment and let cool
Yum and addictive!
