I was trying to grow succulents in the kitchen windows, but with the solar screens on, they weren't getting enough light. So I removed the screens from a couple of the windows, and they seem to be much happier. I like having the screen off, but am afraid I will need to cover my table with something to keep that end of it from fading from the sun. I cleaned the inside of the windows, but haven't made it to the outside yet. You can see that it is raining.
I was enjoying the view of the backyard while having coffee. With the solar screens on, when it rains hard it plasters the screens to the windows and you can't see out. Taken through the not entirely clean window. We have not done any spring clean-up in the back yard yet.
Last night Hubby was at a dinner meeting, so I was on my own and made this salad. I had made us both the same thing on Monday night, except I added hard-boiled eggs.
I don't usually buy bagged salad, but do sometimes buy the spinach when in a hurry. I was all excited to see the new Fresh Express Spinach and Arugula, as I love arugula. Well, as I was searching for where it was......I started counting them. The bag had 6 tiny leaves of arugula!!! What a disappointment. Was I wrong to expect a few more? I don't think so, but yes, they can say, it did have arugula. I went online to make a comment at their website, but they wanted the product code of the item, and I had already tossed the bag. I think I will buy another bag today and see if the same holds true, then I will have the information when I write to them. I've been thinking about growing a small kitchen garden outside the back door. But the way the squirrels have eaten my succulents, I don't know how much luck I'd have.
Well, I'm off to experience some April weather.
