This was really a perfect Saturday, except for the part where we haven't worked in the house at all

What do good assistant gardeners get? Dim sum. Steamed dumplings (the transparent kind) stuffed with pork and peanut, steamed spareribs with black bean sauce, "steamed bean curd stuffed with shrimps seaweed wrap meat," the BEST ever steamed fluffy han bao with BBQ pork inside, "beef rice roll" (beef inside the flat rice noodles), and "honey BBQ pork pies." Oh, and egg custard tarts and "rice ball filled with egg custard, sesame seed and peanut," wrapped in a banana leaf with a toothpick shoved through it. All that, $10 each. Wow! Mmm, and there's still a little tart left. I should eat that.

What do good gardeners get? Piles and piles of dahlias. Through a STUNNING accounting error, I was undercharged by about $50 (the checker read the 27 as 7 @ $3, and there you go), which I didn't quite work out until we were far, far from the sale (they were rushing us out because they were closing). Actually, I got these because I am a bad gardener and killed off almost all of my stock last year, when I let it sit for too long before planting. Now I've got extras for Rodney and wordknitter (if she wants them).

What do good assistant gardener's assistants get? Currently it's extremely high protein dog food and the cutest little stuffed pink elephant. Damn, he looks so cute with it, I want to take a picture and post it.

So ... a very busy Sunday, with gardening and dim sum and lots of little shopping errands. I'm pretty pleased.
