The Spring Garden

The work began in earnest – but not until the afternoon. The morning was dedicated to prepping the house for a remote viewing via Zoom. I’ll be interested to see how that went. We sure did scrub and tidy the place.

But I’m terribly pleased with progress: alpine strawberries, cabbage, cauliflower and lettuce are in cold frames. Tomatoes. squash and basil are potted and in a sunny window. Broccoli and beefsteak tomatoes are sown and under grow lights.

Tomorrow I am planning a big day: moving the entire compost pile on top of my sheet mulching and preparing the bed for squash; creating a new raspberry patch and moving all the soil to the beds. Whew! Oh yes, also sowing spinach.

Simon did amazing work in the garden too: all the gardens coming up the driveway are neat and trim and, as a result, our hugel is growing in leaps and bounds.

Exciting.

Most exciting: I learned today that I really am in charge (at last) of my patterns. I do not have to run away when I get upset. In fact, I can look at and acknowledge my upset and not lose sight of my love or of the big picture. And I can engage and keep engaging. And I can listen and do my best to understand.

When I do that, my love grows.
