These past few years we've been sitting on the fence. About whether to stay in our glorious wee corner of the world, or move on. And so, i haven't thrown myself heart and soul into the garden here. We always have a garden of sorts going. Certainly the medicinal herbs i use and greens and yes, some years the garden has been amazing but often i hold back. I have been thinking about that. I think i would like to live differently. I mean, i dance like no-one is watching and sing like no-one is listening, so i figure i'll garden like i'll get to reap the harvest. Someone will. And what a gift that would be!
Jed is on it. He has planted his seeds. We got a little crafty on the plant pots and used toilet rolls. I cut slits in the bottom and folded them up evenly to make a base. Jed was convinced it wasn't going to work. Ha!
I reckon we can just undo the folds and pop these babies right into the ground.
We do have one little problem i need to address before planting day. The S word.
Uh huh. Slugs. We suddenly have a gazillion of the little beagles. They love the straw mulch it seems.
I'll have to get back to you on that one. It'll be an organic solution, a friendly to other critters sort of solution.
What exactly is beyond me at this sleep deprived point.
It's just such a miracle isn't it? The whole seed germinating and growing milarky. It never gets old.
The little faces light up in wonder. The older ones too come to think of it.
The seedlings in the back are from Weathersfield Organics. I bumped into the founder years ago at East West Organics and she made quite an impression. I like knowing who i buy from. It's the next best to growing my own or buying from the farmer's market.
