Garden Imperatives, Clothing Emergencies
Today was a beautiful day, breezy but approaching 90 before noon. I got out in the garden early to work on my potatoes planted in bags. They need dirt, compost and straw constantly added as they grow, to allow the potatoes to develop in the dark. This has been more of an undertaking than I had imagined, but so far I’m managing to stay up with it. We bought maybe twice the seed potatoes that we actually needed, but it’s our first time growing potatoes. I can’t help wondering just how those baby potatoes are looking under all that dirt.
The English peas are maturing and I’ve picked the few that are ready. They’re not enough for a meal yet, so I’m just popping them in a freezer bag as we shell them.
I was pretty well wiped out by ten this morning and had to just come in and cool off for a while. I’m old enough to know better than to overdo it.
After a quick lunch with my husband, I had a wonderful cool shower, dressed, and went clothes shopping. Now this might not sound like a big deal to most people, but it is a big deal for me. I hate to shop. So what happens is I end up with nothing to wear and then it’s an emergency.
The collage shown above is one of the pieces I finished on Monday of this week, during my moment of breakthrough.
