It’s been hot and humid in my Valley. The temperature was in the mid-90′s all day, and the humidity was about the same. At 10:00 pm it’s 86. Not exactly what my mother used to call good sleeping weather.
After a slow start, our 22 foot mandala garden is looking pretty good, with celery, broccoli, brussel sprouts, garlic, onions, beets, radishes, carrots, peas, lettuce, kale, chard, beans, potatoes and sweet potatoes in the ground. Sunflowers, tomatoes and assorted herbs and flowers have volunteered from last year, and they are welcome additions. Here’s a look:
I spent some time in the garden yesterday, a welcome respite from the events of the past few weeks. What a wonderful place to be, feet planted firmly on the ground, feeling the energy of the earth. Here are some photos so you can see how my garden grows. As always, feel free to leave me a comment, or a stone (o) to let me know you have been here.
