Up & Down


May bouquet: peonies, coreopsis, batchelor's button, yarrow, dwarf iris

Well goodness, hello Monday. After a week of feeling like a pregnant rockstar, I woke up Saturday feeling a mite bit under the weather. That is really how these last two months have been, kind of up and then a little down. So we slowed it down - naps, a few projects, more naps, some music, miso soup, early to bed, lunch out...you get the idea. We managed to get a lot done and take it very easy. The garden is completely planted and I can't tell you how often we just sit and take it in. In fact, one of the loveliest things being pregnant has made me do is just sit right in the middle of the garden. I can only do so much bending and reaching, so I just plonk right down and do my thing, scooch along, repeat. From down there the garden just surrounds you; garlic waving above your head, stunning red cabbage leaves inches from your fingers. On Friday I grabbed Ben's hand and we just sat in the garden until it started to rain. Good stuff.


May harvest crops: lettuce, arugula, kale, chard, bok choy, broccoli rabe, rhubarb, spring onions, peas, strawberries

Hope the weekends were lovely out there.

thanks to leg & wheelchair, i have done the whole spring sitting as well and it's been a revelation.

i am so glad you have the garden you want and the imperative to enjoy it in stillness....
