Maleonn, Days on the Cotton Candy
It rains in Columbus with brief snippets of sun today. This should be good for my plants.
I got a giant cache of seeds from my new friend Kristen including native corn, hopi and iroquois squash, a bunch of beans, flax, a rye & barley mix, tiger and yellow tomatoes, and some other randoms. I also learned about three sisters planting from her.
I met Kristen at bonfire last fall. We bonded over s'mores and mutual goofiness. I had not seen her since then, but after I made a post on facebook about whether anyone had a spare watering can, she answered the call. In addition to the watering can, I got the seeds, a bird feeder, tons of pots, and quite a bit of useful gardening knowledge.
I seeded the new seeds last night. I have a bunch of plants already growing and two that are producing right now. It should be a delectable summer.
Sharon's lovely blog has inspired me to actually write again instead of just posting photos. Originally the idea for this blog was just to keep track of photos I liked, but originally originally, the blog was more of a channel for journaling. I'm getting back into the original original vein.
Now back to cleaning... or perhaps more internetting and then more cleaning...
