Miso-Glazed Salmon

Sunday was yard work day at Duke’s House. Not exactly our favorite weekend activity.

Chris spent his afternoon mowing acres and acres of grass while I got to do the fun stuff. I crawled around our flower beds for hours pulling out tons of bulbs and what I think are were chives.

We have a war on bulbs at Duke’s House. They have begun to unstake the weed cloth that we so carefully placed in our flower beds last summer.  Some exceptionally rebellious bulbs have been growing up through the weed cloth. There are bulbs abound.

Even our weed pile, full of remanents from last year’s plant carnage,  is sprouting daffodils and what my non-green thumb can best identify as white amaryllis and purple hyacinths.

After I decimated hundreds of flower bulbs, Chris used the tractor to dump loads of mulch in strategic locations so that we could spread it more easily and fill in the spots where it had washed away over the winter. Finally, for the first time in the three years that we have lived here, I feel pretty happy with the appearance of our yard.

Our long day of yard work was rewarded with a little time vegging on our back porch. This meant an easy grilled dinner, including some of the first asparagus from our garden, prepped by me and cooked by Chris.

From Bon Apetit.

    I fully understand and appreciate the long hours and effort it takes to keep a large yard looking decent. I’ll bet you guys were wiped out after that! Glad you got to relax and enjoy that tasty looking supper!

    Yardwork.Ew. I avoid it like the plague. Thankfully we do not have a gigantic backyard, and have no front yard. Our only landscaping is some white rock w/ palm trees..No flowers, bushes, or anything that really needs any care.

    That salmon looks delish. I’m starting to explore cooking fish more often. Tonight we are having grilled trout (from what we caught over the weekend) Yum!!
