Today’s garden agenda was: water, weed, cultivate between rows, clean up a pile of branches from yesterday, harvest like a bushel of beautiful spinach, plant a few more baby herbs, freeze spinach for Avdi, give Percy his salad of mixed lettuces and greens, and take a few photos, including one of my bunny buddies, who always imagines she’s hidden from sight. That human will never find me!
Every so often I walked down the new “woodland trail”. It’s kind of zen. Now I’m thinking, some LED fairy lights throughout.
Then I walked home. I was wishing I had a doggy friend to hang out with, but next best thing– the little free book kiosk had a copy of Jack London’s “Call of the Wild”, which I had left mine behind in NJ, so now I have one. (Yes, I’m aware of controversies surrounding his and others’ attitudes from that era, but it’s still a classic.)
I’m about to start reading James S. A. Corey, “Leviathan Wakes”, #1 in the Expanse series, so I will never be bored again!
Guess what I’ve been living on–you guessed it, fresh spinach, greens, and radishes! I figure I earned it from all the gardening. I feel privileged.
