Well I passed my candidacy exam yesterday (woo!) – I’ve successfully cleared the highest hurdle, but can’t take too much of a breather because I begin my next adventure this weekend.
Saturday I fly to Germany where I will be working on a collaborative research project with a group in Oldenburg. I am very much looking forward to of course meeting new people and learning some brand new analytical techniques, but I can’t wait to just get out and explore a new country.
Before I go, I leave you with one more garden update:
Both the peppers and tomatoes are beginning to bud like mad, but I think I’m going to keep any fruit at bay by having Jim pluck them until I get back in 2 weeks. It’s still a bit hot here and waiting until we have cooler overnight temps will be better for developing veggies I think (or so I’ve read anyway).
See you guys when I get back!
