Ok, well now that we’ve aired out our feelings about green…. (sheepishly looks away)… let’s um, talk about our gardens! And how green and beautiful they are in the fall (or spring) rains.
How is your garden faring? Have you saved seeds yet? Are you finding the resources you need to learn how to do what you need to do next? In other words, are you learning to save your seeds, learning when to harvest, learning how to plant fall and winter crops, and so on?
I will tell you I’m scared. Scared to save those amaranth seeds. The stalks are much taller than I am, and they’re falling over due to the weight of the millions of seeds on each one… and I’m actually petrified. They’re so pretty, and yet I have this feeling saving them will be difficult! I’m sure it’s irrational.
Tomorrow night we have a p-patch banquet, so I’ll ask around. And if I don’t find out… hmmm, if only there were a thing with lots of different information where you could just type in what you want to know and it will give you ideas… Oh, yeah… so not doing that (ie not looking it up on the computer) does that mean I’m lazy? Gasp! Ok, off to find the answer….
