    We spread compost from grass clippings and chicken coop cleanouts on our garden, so I usually don't add more fertilizer to anything, although sometimes if things are flagging I'll use a foliar spray....

    That's nice to know, Charley.

    I don't think I eat totally in the Continental fashion; sometimes I do switch. But I don't put my left hand in my lap, either.

    Interesting; how do you feel that it forces you to eat faster? I don't think it makes any difference in the way I eat.

    Yes, that does look like what I have. I guess I could just serve it as a roast, then. And make sandwiches out of the leftovers.

    We use fitted bottom sheets and flat top sheets. We also use a duvet cover, but since we change the sheets weekly and the duvet is protected by them we treat it more as we would a blanket.

    Lamb always seems like a spring dish to me. Friday night we had a small roast of lamb plus Yorkshire pudding and salad. It's finally getting milder but there's still a trace of snow on the ground.
