Garden Update


Garden, a set on Flickr.

I am officially on summer vacation! This means I can spend more time doing the things I love most – studying Druidism, sewing/crocheting, and working in my garden.

I did a lot of the latter yesterday. I gave most of my plants some yummy organic fertilizer, transplanted the zucchini, sage, and some tomatoes. I planted more lettuce and sunflowers. Oh gosh, I just love being in my garden! I feel so at peace working with my plants. Even when I didn’t have a lot of time, I made sure to water them every day. That little bit of time with them brightened my entire busy month. No matter what, I maintained my connection to those nature spirits and the Earth Mother. Although gardening is a demanding hobby, I am glad to have it – especially when other things start to take over. I am obligated to keep my green partners alive and so I am forced daily into a situation that I love and need.

  1. What a lovely garden! I am sure you will enjoy your time there! I can’t wait until I have a garden too!!! I do have an indoor herb garden, which is nice also. And we are growing some ghost chili peppers that I won’t be able to eat, as well as a jade plant and some spider plants. Hooray!

    1. Thanks! It sounds to me like you *do* have a garden! Even growing one plant of your own, especially something edible, is excellent. Herbs are so useful! What do you have? I keep meaning to get some basil. I had some but it didn’t survive the winter. šŸ˜¦

      LOL Why are you growing a pepper you can’t eat? Is it for your fiance?

      Oh, and I love jade and spider plants. Do you have any aloe? I have a lot and would love to give you a baby if you wanted!

  2. I guess I sort of do have a garden! lol. I always thought of veggies and such as more of a garden, but I have more of an herb garden. šŸ™‚

    I have a LOT of basil (plants that I bought and from seed), a bit of cilantro(from seed), one sage plant that made it, thyme, oregano (the previous three all from seed), and lavender. I do not have aloe, but would LOVE a baby if you can bear to part with it!!! That’s so sweet of you! It’s one that I have been wanting for my indoor garden. šŸ™‚

    I do love my herbs though, and we have to get a new basil plant every year because after winter, the previous year’s is barely hanging on…it’s sad to part with it though. Sorry about yours too. Also, yes…the ghost chilis are for my lovely fiance who can tolerate much spicier things than I can. hehe.

    Do you have spider plants? I just replanted these, but soon enough they will be making babies too and if you want one ,or some, I will gladly send those along also. It will take a little while of course, but as soon as I have some I could collect however many you want. I’m so excited to have some aloe! Thanks again!
