Around the Garden
Life has been full around here this week. We finished up our last day of kindergarten on Monday, we celebrated this wonderful country we call home yesterday, with friends, and today, I ran my first, of what I hope will be many, nature camp. It's the kinda full that makes your heart sing, and fills you up with that happy feeling.
And to top it all off, the gardens are thriving. At the beginning of the week I was praying for it to stop raining, yes, to stop raining, and it did, finally. The gardens were saturated, and I wasn't quite sure how much more rain they could handle. Thankfully, the sun came out yesterday, and for the next five days we have nothing but sunshine in the forecast, and that means all the little jobs on my garden to do list will hopefully get done this weekend.
Everything is lush and green in the gardens, and more food is being harvested every day, including snow peas!! Did you see them? That was the first handful on Monday, since then there has been many more, and even some shared with friends today. Around the rest of the garden the pole beans are growing up, bush beans and runner beans are blossoming, the cucumber is using the trellis and slowly starting to grow up it, the first of the strawberries are ripening, and the herbs are exploding. These are good days in the garden, and I am soaking up every bit of it.
How are things around your garden?
