It was rainy, cold, and miserable today. My farmer just asked me stay long enough to do a walkabout with her and harvest some goodies for myself. I took a little extra time to clean up the coolers and packing shed and weed the little patch of cutting lettuce while I was snipping some for myself.

Back home, the peaches are popping, and I have some pretty knocked up looking apple blossoms. I’m waiting for it to dry out to finish getting the potatoes, carrots, and squash in…then I’m all done planting.

Mostly though, my evenings have been looking like this now that Soil Science has started. I picked chamomile and lemon balm for the tea, and cut flowers from my little lilac bush to make studying a little more enjoyable.
