Closet meat=good

Yes, the patio got installed, and it's awesome. Pictures later. But while we're totally off the subject of gardening, check out what's been in our linen closet for the past two weeks:

It's homemade pancetta!

It started as a raw pork belly, which my mother-in-law gave me for my birthday. It then (why the passive voice? no idea.) got rubbed down with salt, sugar, pepper, and various herbs, and sat in the refrigerator for a week. Then after getting rolled into a tight log, it spent the past two weeks hanging in our linen closet, which brings you up to date. And then:

There is much Carbonara and Amatriciana, among other things, in our future.
