Ok, who invited the rhino…and what the heck have you been feeding him?
Something this fresh requires a light hand in the kitchen. We broiled the pickerel. I generously drizzled apfelwein over it and pats of butter. Then I sprinkled it lightly with seasoned salt and a nice coating of romano cheese. Mmmmm.
Today my oldest boy caught a State Pin worthy pickerel on our first fishing trip of 2011. Unfortunately, she didn’t make it for a return to her home so we will honor her by eating a tasty pickerel meal tonight.

Expanded the garden significantly today. I built 4 new lasagna beds, one set for pole beans. A few more areas to spread the leaf compost and some new chicken wire fencing to go up and we should be set for the garden season.
A thick layer of newspaper goes down first.
The secret: seaweed
Pile the seaweed onto the newspaper
Cover the seaweed with leaf litter
