victory told me that if i planted some seeds i would end up with things growing in my garden. the thing is i totally did not believe her. i was thinking i have no green thumb and no idea what i am doing and what will happen is i will look forlornly out my window at my 4×8 raised dirt patch all summer. but guess what? victory was right.
above you can see my two rows of sugar snap peas in the center of the photo with my bush peas peaking out behind them and a little carrot fluff in the lower left corner. carrot fluff! and my spinach is not in the picture but it is there.
i am totally thrilled that there is some green. green! in my vegetable garden! sometimes just peaking out the window at this sight kind of makes me feel a little burst of energy. now if only i could figure out if my baby trees are ever going to come out of “dormant” and into “alive.” i am worried they are not getting enough sun. anyone have any tips? or gifted at speaking with dormant trees? or got any idea who i should talk to since the dormant trees don’t seem to be very chatty?
while i am on the topic of talking the trees. i remember reading this book about ten years or so ago when i first got serious about animal communication and it was about this botanist that talked to his plants and was a very sucessful and famous botanist. do any of you know who i am talking about? i would like to revisit the man or the book but i am totally drawing a blank. and then there was this garden somewhere….maybe in scottland? or somewhere like that, where they were growing tropical fruit and had this lush amazing garden in land that was supposed to be unable to sustain that kind of growth and they said they talked to the land fairies or plant fairies or something. i would like to find that information also. but, for all kinds of reasons that we do not need to delve into, i seem to be incapable of remembering enough to relocate these sources. so if you read this and have a clue please help me?! thank you.
peace out people. remember, i won’t be around this afternoon because i will be in the hands of a very capable hair artist named jimmy. not that this blog is live and you care if i am around or anything. but just so you know.
i just was thinking me and my haircut is a lot like a kid and their birthday. i talk about it everyday for weeks prior to the event. i wonder if the anticipation is more then half the fun…like birthdays.
