The Kindness of Spring
My way of unwinding as an adult has always been to garden. I feel so lucky to have had beautiful weather all spring in which to garden on my day off each week. I don't believe I have ever been this caught up when the spring rush is ending. Usually I am just beginning to plant and pull the majority of weeds but instead I am almost done. Of course, I am considering a small new sunny bed for butterfly plants and more herbs. I'd like to have pineapple sage, Mexican mint marigold, more butterfly bush because I love every color and more salvias.
The veggie garden is looking good. The green beans are just beginning to produce. The potatoes seem to be waining a bit so I wonder how much longer until they are ready. It's tomatoes I want but even though the plants look good there are no tomatoes yet.
