    Same. Throw a little harissa on there. Carrots love harissa, in my experience.
  2. Hence my blighted tomatoes. Things were a little better further north, I guess.
  3. I had a very good berry foraging year. I wonder what happened to the farmed ones.
  4. Going just for this. It's been a while since I visited with her.
  5. (eyes very large orange in fruit bowl, gets ideas.)
  6. I, for one, am thrilled to pieces.
  7. This has not been a stellar year for either of my gardens. Downstate, my Sungold offered up 50 fruit, which sounds pretty good, but that's half of the usual yield. The Pink Berkeley Tie Dyes and Premios were even worse - just a few fruits each. I got three Anaheim peppers - which is actually a pretty good haul for me - and a fine amount of kale, chard, parsley, dill, thyme, sage and tarragon. The basil, mint, cilantro and oregano keeled over dead before doing anything useful. Upstate, I'm very hopeful to get more cukes. Last time we were there, the vines were covered in flowers and infant fruits, and I've already made a very respectable batch of pickles. The green beans have been uncharacteristically anemic, and of the peas, the less said, the better. H shamed me by growing a fine crop of yellow pear tomatoes in this, his first year out as a vegetable grower, while none of my tomatoes did squat. (He's in charge of flowers. I don't give a damn about flowers. I can't eat flowers.) I was reasonably successful with carrots this year, likely due to my next-door neighbor getting a countertop composter (she has no need of compost, but I do). I continue to bang my head against the wall trying to grow okra and beets, both of which obviously hate me. Looking forward to 2024 at this point.
  8. Our kitchen is red, so we'd be more inclined toward rubies.
  9. I fear if we get a Miele, people will think they can hit us up for money.
  10. Yeah, we've pretty much settled on the Bosch, now. H is trying to convince me that the hidden control panel is worth the extra $100. I think it's too fancy, and it's just going to shame the other appliances.
  11. The length of cycle is not a big deal for us - we usually run the dishwasher overnight.
  12. You're So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah So much cringe, so much yeah, this looks very familiar. Best exchange: Girl: I'm an adult! I've had my period for like seven months! Dad: That's a long period.
  13. Ah, interesting. I am seduced by the top rack, and the quiet-ness. But our cheap-ish old GE gave us a good run. The door latch gave out about a year ago, so you have to open it with a steak knife (this unleashes my inner MaGyver). And very recently it decided not to fully drain. Our building plumber speculates that it's a busted motor on the pump. Does not seem worth repairing, considering the thing is 16 years old and discontinued, so very hard to get parts.
  14. Thanks! We are definitely leaning that way, despite the extra $.
