We’re making our way home but made time to stop by carlsbad caverns. I was last here 21 years ago… Damn I’m old. But it was great to go there with my family this time. ———————————————————- #carlsbadcaverns #caverns #cave #underground #newmexico #carlsbad #carlsbadnm #igersnewmexico #vacation #family #roadtrip #stalactites #stalacmites #columns #iger #igers #igerssandiego #nationalpark

If you came to me and said “I want to put a giant chrome bean in the middle of the park, and call it #cloudgate” I would laugh derisively at you… Glad the people of #chicago aren’t me. This was pretty cool. We spent yesterday afternoon in Chicago wandering the streets and eating good food at #giordano’s, thanks to @614scottsmith for the recommendation. The weather was perfect, glad we brought it with us from #sandiego. Now to go see the wedding of two lovely people. ———————————————————- #milleniumpark #sculpture #art #illinois #chitown #people #cityscape #road #roadtrip #vacation #family #sandiegoontheroad #igerssandiego #fishoutofwater #bigcity #windycity #thewindycity #cloud #gate #park #millenium

So I cleaned out our #gutter #planter and replaced all the #soil in it. The last time I mixed in our native soil which had tons of crabgrass seeds in it. So now that I’ve started fresh I planted some #chard #strawberries and #lettuce in it. Also planted my #urfabiber, #carolinareaper, #mustardscorpion, and #marugascorpion #pepper #plants in the planter on the ground. Pretty much everything is planted, now I just need to wait and watch them #grow. ———————————————————- #garden #gardening #backyard #food #sandiego #igerssandiego #california #california_igers #elcajon #suburbanfarming #growsomethinggreen #growing

It’s like a meat mummy… Dinner last night. Had a small get together for some pre saint Patrick’s day fun, about a dozen people by night’s end. This was my experiment: a corned beef brisket, seasoned, wrapped in applewood bacon, and smoked over cherry wood. ———————————————————- #bacon #cornedbeef #saintpatricksday #stpatricksday #pattysday #food #party #smoking #bbq #sdfoodie #sandiego #igerssandiego #california #california_igers #delicious #brisket #applewoodbacon #cherrywood #meat
