Brain...empty...just...look...here....

I have more acupuncture tomorrow. Yippeee!

I have conquered the wasp's nest. The one I didn't see when I was hacking at the overgrown shrubbery. The one that rose up in a cloud of anger and stung the shit out of me two weeks ago. Yeah. The bites that still are slightly swollen on my hand? Those are the fuckers. I had to set Buddah aside and spray the holy living shit out of their nest at dusk yesterday. I think I emptied an entire can - of Raid and whoop ass - on this nest. The sight of their poor posioned bodies made me feel bad for approximately 3.8 seconds...until I pointed to my hand and said "You'll never sting me again, mother fuckers. You fucked with the wrong gardener..."

I started to take pictures, and then got the sense that this was TOO much mocking to lay upon the wasps.

Went to the market again today. I am a fresh produce whore. Sigh. I have some pictures of heirloom tomatos, but no time to upload them tonight. A Rainy day perhaps?

So look here, and let us all hope that my sense of inner calm returns, and I will not have to visit the wrath of Dawn upon any small buzzing creatures in the near future...

Those Canadian vegetables are horny, too. Look at them...all shiny and fresh, and probably organic too. Lock up your gnomes, dude.

Elizabeth said...

Feral Mom-ha!! I didn't even know carrots came in that many different colors. I need to shop at the Farmer's Market more.

Lisa said...

LOVE those pics. How can you not resist eating fresh fruits and veggies when they look that beautiful!

Daren said...

It looks like it was worth the move just for the produce. My God, those vegetables are simply gorgeous.

Oh, and thanks for ridding the planet of your share of the bugs. Bugless is the way to be!

I guess those French-Canadians know a thing or two about presentation.

I think Buddha might have to blow me when it comes to bees, wasps and mosquitos.

Jaelithe said...

Pollinators, eaters of plant-killing insects, and brilliant little architects though they may be, the wasps struck first. I would have dumped two cans of whoop-ass on them.

TB said...

Those are the lovliest and most colorful root vegetables I've ever seen.

Andrea said...

Those pictures are sexy as hell. It's making me so... hungry.

Maybe if I had such freshness near me, I'd eat better. I'll have to look into my local farmer's market.

Meghan said...

You are like the Annie Leibowitz of Produce.

Yum.

6 DAYS! until we get goofy on wine together! HOORAY!!!

Haha when my fiance and I moved into our new place, three wasps nests had laid claim to our patio. I busted out a can of Raid and went at them. For a while people could hear me shrieking. And I had to keep running back inside for safety. Eventually though, I won.

Dan said...

The wasps were right below our bedrooom window, so we dumpe a containe of gasoline on them, and quickly closed the window. We only found one live wasp the next day. With raid we finished him of.

Her Bad Mother said...

Yeah, those are some HOT veggies. Glistening with dirty goodness.

Mmmm. Carrots...

Mommy off the Record said...

I would totally sell myself for fresh produce too. Mmmmmm.
