Maple Black Pepper Pork Chops

4 pork chops, bone-in or boneless (I like ones that are about 1 inch thick, and as always, if you can find a local purveyor of humanely-raised meat, please do choose that.)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoon whole black peppercorns, crushed in a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder
2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
1 large shallot, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup pure maple syrup (I prefer Grade B or Dark Amber)

Tomatoes are planting in the tunnels, and the posts are up to trellis the tomatoes onto.

As some of you may remember Patricia and Frank spent 6-8 weeks in Ontario last spring, when Frank was cast in a movie.  Suprise, suprise the film, called Mobile Homes, is debuting at the Cannes Film Festival. This once in a lifetime opportunity was too great to pass up and the Bishop/Oulton clan left on Thursday to take in the festivities. We are so happy for Frank and the whole family that they get to take all this unbelievable experience in. #farmtoredcarpet 

With many thanks to you all!
