my original goal yesterday was to read 150 pages from an assigned novel from the 18th century.
i got to page 17. all this sunshine tempts me to clean the house inside and play in the dirt outside.
so i'm a day behind in my studies. but it was totally worth it.
i now have a little herb garden of lavender, rosemary, thyme, and cilantro.
there are plans to add more and more herbs to my collection as the lovely weather continues.
last year my little herb garden became victim to an aphid extravaganza.
so this year i will try to remember to shield my little plants with the proper repellents.
i so wish that we could have a larger garden with all sorts of delicious veggies
and a little patch of strawberries. but we live in a rental home that has never
had the luxury of a gardener. thus, the soil is terrible, and i don't have
the time or money to give it the love it needs to produce the crop that i dream of.
i think the most i could do is make a couple of planter boxes...if i get the time...
and there's that little glitch in a summer garden where i leave home for six weeks
every summer to go to school. if i could find the right care-taker while i'm gone it might just work.
do you garden? what have you planted so far? any signs of life peeking out of the soil?
