Thanks to Scott Wilson for this photo from yesterday’s hike: the last bit up the Reco summit block.
Today – an entirely different experience. Sourdough bread, laundry, vacuuming, mopping, cleaning, weeding, watering. Sowed more carrots and onions for a fall harvest.
Did I mention weeding?
We have garlic, and Simon picked our first yummy carrot. Tomorrow has to be a big harvest day: cabbages, potatoes, peas, carrots – we are now at the stage where every day feels like catch-up.
At the same time, it’s immensely satisfying to see a crisper drawer full of radishes and lettuce, and even more satisfying to make a monster salad that’s almost exclusively from the garden including lots of herbs.
On another note, I clapped back on one of those awful right-wing memes today – something I do whenever I see one because to be silent is to be complicit – and, of course, I got pushback – and I pushed back because that’s the way it is. But someone thanked me for standing up.
And that really hit me. I replied that I would rather stand up than lie down because you only get walked on when you’re lying down.
And I felt good about that.
I’m not brave. I’m just doing what I believe is right. My tiny little bit.
