When left to linger
Unmolested in the vestibule"...

Come right in. Sit right down. Baby let the warmth times roll. All plants need is a little water, a little fertilizer and a little shelter from the storm.

Yesterday I had to give a presentation, for my company, at the Kennedy School. Talk about overachievers. I am so fab but these students are really fab. I heard the most amazing stories from them. 50% are international students and many of them have been through hell-shot, raped, burka wearing etc. One woman, on her free time, read the old and new testament, the torah, koran and som hindu thing-she has like 20 more religious books to go...in her free time. They are really into Public Policy. I never thought much about Public Policy until I started at my current job. Public Policy is cool. I worked in Biotech and Technology companies in the past making lots of money. But I more enjoy working with economists that went to top tier colleges. I make a decent salary, not as much as I made in Biotech, but I am happy.

Today I walked around Cambridge with the rare clumber for one hour with a "Madison" shirt (fitted natch to show guns) and received 5 comments about how much the peeps in Cambridge love Madison.

Cambridge loves you Madison!!!!

They came into the vestibule, and then just stood there. In the morning, they were still there. Spooky!

Maybe they want out?

Ann, it's an alien invasion like one in a 1950's Sci Fi flick. Look for pods among the "vegetation" and...
BEWARE!

No way would it get anywhere near 32 last night. Are these some kind of plants that shudder at 40?

Uh oh. I hope they aren't hungry.

Careful, Ann -- they might be Triffids.

Chili plants for making chile rellenos. They are chill averse. Anything below 50 gives them the chills. They'll go back out in the sun on Wednesday after the windchill chills out a bit.

"Chili Reinas

Roast large bell peppers until the skin turns black. Wash in cold water and rub off the blackened skin. Cut around the stem and remove the seed and coarse veins. Take some dry Monterey cheese, grated fine, and with this fill the peppers, closing the end with a wooden toothpick.

Prepare a batter made as follows: Beat the yolks and whites of six eggs separately, then mix, and stir in a little flour to make a thin batter. Have a pan of boiling lard ready and after dipping the stuffed pepper into the batter dip it into the lard. Remove quickly and dip again in the batter and then again in the lard where it is to remain until fried a light, golden brown, keeping the peppers entirely covered with the boiling lard.

Take the seeds of the peppers, one small white onion and two tomatoes, and grind all together into a pulp, add a little salt and let cook ten minutes. When the chilies are fried turn the remainder of the batter into the tomatoes and boil twenty minutes, then turn this sauce over the peppers.

This is a most delicious dish and can be varied by using finely ground meat to stuff the peppers instead of the cheese."

No greenhouse?

I suggest a greenhouse. A small one. Perfect for those sensitive plants in the fall.
