Every now & again
There is the best day, ever.
I volunteer as a Land Steward for the local Land Trust
And this best day ever began on a walk with the owner of one of the properties I help monitor
Just into the walk, some amazing life was discovered
After walking the boundary of their property, I headed over to the garden
Thank you Tomatoes!
Thank you Tomatillos!
Thank you Coreopsis & Calendula & Basil!
Thank you Serranos!
Thank you Sunflowers!
So out came the rest of the beets, and carrots
And, with a bit of sadness, two marigold plants
As I dug carrots, the sheep began to gather nearby
A bit of weeding & raking,
and in about two weeks, I’ll put the garlic to bed again, till next July
Before leaving, I gathered up the cured Winter squash from the greenhouse
(I think I left it in there a bit too long…
Brought home some garlic for cooking, and a few Fennel fronds that were drying & peppers gifted by the owners from the hoop house
