i set out some tomatoes and tomatillo outside today, in an attempt to harden then up before transplanting. i'm hedging my bets because i'm only volunteering the less healthy seedlings first; that way if these don't survive the transplant, i still have some healthier plants for when the weather does get better. for lunch i had a bacon & egg english muffin sandwich, first rendering out a quarter cup of bacon fat with the foreman grille. in the afternoon i went to chinatown with my father. when we got back, my parents came over to my place for dinner (noodles). my mother was complaining about her allergies. i gave her some sudafed and some nasal spray but they didn't seem to help. although it rained briefly earlier this morning, the weather for the rest of the day was dry and windy, with tree pollen coating everything.
the highlight of the evening was game 2 between the celtics and the cavaliers; boston beat cleveland in a resounding victory. game 3 saturday night. my great uncle - a lifelong celtics fan - doesn't believe celtics will win the championship this year. i think he's going to be surprised!
