I must say the weather has improved the last couple of days, hot today quite hot. Planted my snow peas about a month later than everybody else. Have you noticed that somehow there are always some seeds left when you got to the end of your bed. I put the leftover peas in a small plastic container and stuck it under my garden bench.
Now today I came across them, half of my little snow peas had germinated. So I had to dig a new bed for them – I could not just leave them un-planted now when they showed me they are alive. I had to get them in the earth now… digging is now my favorite thing. One gets blisters on the hands, even though I have good gloves.
Then I turned to my medicine wheel, it is sometimes frightening to see the mass of weeds … until one discovers their strong willingness to live. I feel the weeds teach me patience . Especially thistles with stingers on.
I had invested in 3 adorable plants called All-Heal. I just felt happy when I saw them at the nursery. I planted them in a nice tidy row all tree of them. As I watered them they somehow sent me their thanks for being in the earth now. I put the bucket of water away, and when I went back to check on my wards, they seemed to have stretched out having soaked up the sun and water. They were glowing… I am seeing things perhaps, but it make me happy.
I look over my wheel, it is laid out like a pie, and some of these triangular pie shapes is waiting to be weeded and inhabited with ‘real’ plants. But not today however, the sun is bearing down on me. And I have to do some other work as well.
