You know you’re addicted to something when…

I had grand plans for my day off: I was going to get the rest of the tilling done in the vegetable garden, throw myself a kitchen compost bin (to gather compostable scraps, not to actually compost in, silly!), and do other sundries. Instead, I found myself getting interested in basket weaving. I spent the […]

Nemesis, and recompense.

This plant and I are currently not on speaking terms. We’re in that stand-offish, close-mouthed stage where each of us stands her ground and stares at the other, willing her to back down. I don’t know what it is, except that despite its fresh, soft, innocent look, it is not a pelargonium (Geranium). It can’t […]

I think I know some people who should apply…

Yes! I have secured a community garden plot with the Greenbelt Garden Club! I’m going over there at four tomorrow to see which plots are available and pick which one I like best. I can’t wait to start tilling earth again, pulling weeds, and planting seeds! I’ve never planted a fall crop before, but I’m […]

Because of a serendipitous confluence of circumstances at the Community Center, I have found myself in charge of leading this semester’s Intermediate/Advanced Wheel class. At first I was only on the list as an alternate if one of the other teachers couldn’t do it – but then not just one, but three teachers who had […]

It’s that time again…

Fall is the best time for planting herbaceous perennials. Or really any perennials for that matter. And it’s supposed to be 70 degrees and rainy every single day this week – you just couldn’t ask for better planting weather! Which means… once again, it’s time to break out the checkbook. -grin- I was fairly unhappy […]

New Mexico pictures…

… are up. Check them out! I’ll definitely be printing some of these out and selling them at my next fair. Josh has gotten so good! In other news, I went to Larriland Farm today with my good friend Ann, and we had such a great time! I’ve only been to one other pick-your-own place […]

Fine photography.

We’re back, tired and beauty-saturated, from our vacation in New Mexico. Tomorrow we commence grumbling our way back towards the real world and the cruel inevitability of alarm clocks and frozen meals. (But today, for one last day, we slept late; and for dinner I roasted a chicken on a bed of turnips, baby potatoes, […]
