~ I planted all my veggies in the ground because we didn't want pay for the materials, nor take the time to make raised beds for our veggies. Oh, it's been hard beating the bugs and the crappy soil. Oh, how I wish we'd just done this all differently. Organic pest control and compost by the heaping heap and all the hours I can spare out there do help, but it's a battle. Jeez. We could have just built the damn boxes and this would be somebody else's problem. Oh well. I'll do my best this year. My tomatoes are rocking, my snap peas are climbing, but my greens and beans...oh how they suffer. Next year, I'll make it easier on myself. This year, I'll muddle through because I am not giving up.
~ I am trying out ideas for another project- involving the creation of an embroidery pattern. It is full of its own little learning curves. Belieeeevve me.
~Selling some quilts and bibs, and making some more quilts and bibs. That's what happens now. Not complaining, mind you...but today I am not all all prepared for Friday's show and will be working into the next few nights, with a messy house.
~Remembering to stop and breath, smell the flowers and feed the fish. Appreciating and enjoying the descent into Spring, and then Summer. We can still eat kale that's been shared with bugs, right? When life gives you ugly bug-eaten kale, make green smoothies!
Have a wonderful rest of your week and weekend and I'll see you soon!
