The kids and I joined Lots to Gardens this afternoon to plant seedlings. We planted broccoli and cauliflower, two of the kid's favorite brassicas. The seedlings will grow in the greenhouse until later this spring/early summer when they will be planted in community gardens to help feed local folks.
With back-to-school in the air, the official summer season feels like water under the bridge, yesterday's news. But I'm still standing here on summer's shore and I want collect my favorite treasures from the beach.
I feel our yard space, front and back, are just the right size for how we want to spend our time at this stage of family life; enough space for me to grow lots of beauty, but not too much space that we have to spend a lot of time maintaining.
