We picked strawberries... and then made stuff!

Hooray for anniversaries! Four years of marraige? Even crazier: March 2010 marked 10 years (yes, TEN) together. Dave planned a lovely evening out to Dinner at the Milton Inn. Check out their site and see all the awards they've won... crazy stuff. Although we're an old married couple... we felt like we wouldn't really fit in here for another 20 years. Or maybe never. It was very old-school hunting lodge meets fancy french restaurant? Maybe? I can't quite describe it. Although the service and food was excellent.
Since I'm obsessed with food, of course I will share:
We split the Venison Pate for an appetizer: (example of old-school charm: when the waiter found out we were planning to split the dish he had it divided into two equally beautiful plates).
I had the swordfish. Dave ordered the rack of lamb. We each had a glass of wine. Everything was very tasty and fancy and I don't quite remember the details but it was lovely!

I just rode 140 miles on my bike. 103 miles day one, 30+ miles day two. From Rehobeth Beach to Baltimore City. And in doing so I raised over $1200 for Moveable Feast - enough to feed one client for an entire YEAR! Thank you to everyone who made a contribution. It was one awesome ride!
My bike taking a break at one of the pit-stops... She's a heavy one, so she needed to rest on the ground.

Went to the first farmer's market of the season (for me) with a good friend Sunday morning and had a GREAT TIME! Since it's the season.... my haul included rhubarb, asparagus and strawberries. SO YUMMY. I got one gift for Dave: last year we saw bay leaf plants but hesitated in buying them, only to never see them again. I found him one and am excited to nurse it into a big happy plant.
Our tomato plants getting SO BIG!
The kale is really struggling. I'm not sure it's going to make it.

Neighbor's super cool kitten
Dave's Okra plants
Peas & radishes getting bigger
all the sprouts still growing under lights in the basement (they are SO in the way)
