It seems that gardens are a reflection of a person and what’s going on. This year my garden is fending for itself a fair amount of time. The soil is good and the weather has been nice, so my plants have done well. But I have big areas of unplanted space. Some fall greens are coming along under lights at home and will fill these in soon.
My mom is pretty sick right now. I’ve been visiting the hospital and keeping her company. She had some bad luck it will probably take quite some time to recuperate.
I’m also putting more time into my role as coordinator at the Belmont Community Gardens. Communication and planning. And my new company is growing. Good news, but it keeps me away from my garden on those beautiful rainy days when the flowers colors look so bright and the droplets allow you to reflect.
