grow baby grow
Yesterday as I was playing with cloth and colors, I noticed the blouse I'd torn up to dye with grapes last summer found its missing piece. They somehow ended up next to each other. I have no idea why I tore it like that but I want it to grow back together. And there's a lot of possibilities on how that can happen. I like the way it goes with the funky Kaffe Fassett cloud cloth (thanks again, Deanna!).
The buddha garden is our main vegetable garden -- circular with pathways at the four directions -- this wedge will be planted in peas. I have to lay tomato cages all over everything this time of year so the dogs won't dig -- you see, it's the perfect place for bones to be buried during the winter! My gardening approach is to try not to disturb the soil so I spread a layer of Azomite, a little dried manure or blood meal, and lots of compost on the surface. Then it's watered in and left alone for a few days before planting. This weekend with the waxing moon in Taurus is a prime planting time.
From all signs the bees are thriving and they are some thirsty girls. Hive-house spring cleaning seems to be the next beekeeping task for me, but I'm taking it slow -- March used to be our snowiest month, after all.
My mantra for the next few days is grow baby grow. Thanks for visiting -- happy weekending!
And what are you growing this weekend? xo
