The Rain, The Park and Other Things

Sunday, March 29, 2009:  A gray, “rainy” New England day.  No “park” just substitute “Garden” for “park” — and as always, we have lots of “other things”!  (yes, it WAS the Cowsills)

The rhubarb is just beginning to emerge.

The newly constructed cold frame/hot frame.  If all goes as planned, it will get lots of use.  We have it placed in the turkey pasture at present.

It is just a perfect oatmeal walnut chocolate chunk & chip cookie day.  Three weeks ago, I whipped up a batch that was supposed to actually make a gross (144) of cookies — and I believe the recipe too — it was more than ten cups of ingredients before I added the chocolate!  We ate our way (painlessly! I might add) through half of the dough a few weeks ago. When I got sick of baking cookies that day, I rolled out the last of the dough, wrapped it in waxed paper, and double bagged it with the baking directions, and threw it into the freezer.   Voila!  Today, we have cookies.  Mmmm.

  • A British rock group, Vanity Fare, poked fun at the Cowsills by naming their 1968 album The Sun, the Wind, and Other Things. (You can bet that I will use that as a blog title in a few weeks!)
  • ‘”The Rain, The Park and Other Things” is known to many as “The Flower Girl”
  • #1 in Canada in the week of November 13, 1967
