Out In The Garden

Snapshots from today in the garden.
I was very excited to get in there and get my hands dirty.

I wear this outfit nearly every time I garden, and have for years.
Because I'm a farmer and all.

***

The garden was overgrown and dry.
Still, the Greek oregano managed to come back
like gang busters, as did the sage.


***
Getting my hands dirty. Gardening is actually hard work, yo.
After hours of this kind of squatting as well as all the shoveling and angling,
my body aches. It's a good ache, though.


***
Final result. I prioritized this year, only planting the things I knew I would use.


It's been a good day.

Hey Crys,

I sent you an email concerning your recent blog deletions. It doesn't look like it went through though so I'll just say that I hope all is well with you and that I wish you all of the best.

I understand about the need for a fresh start and if I am part of that cutting process then I'll have no hard feelings. Promise.

God bless you and stay healthy and happy

Peace

~CJ
