I'm SO excited. Last year, I had a tiny guy that never wanted to leave my arms and a new book I was feverishly working on to keep me from getting as fully engaged with the garden as I would have liked. The year prior, I was pregnant and could barely manage to stay awake for more than 3 hours at a stretch during this time of year (man, did I ever sleep then!). It feels so invigorating to have the wherewithal to get out in the garden every day now. Huxley loves it out there, too. He tromps around and plays and digs and moves plastic plant pots and straw and fistfuls of dirt all over. It's just the best.
Here's a smattering of this's and that's that grabbed my attention this week:
*Garden Betty's seed tape is easy, and genius.
*Speaking of seeds, this windowsill kit it lovely.
*First he gave us nettle pasta, now it's nettle risotto.
*Plants that are just as "clean" as they are green.
*Who needs space to grow potatoes?
*The Lavender Lover's Handbook? Yes please!
*Love this N.C. artisans endeavor.
*It's the time of girl hunters.
*Chocolate chicks and eggs of bliss!!!
*That's not green slime, that's fuel.
We're meeting up with friends in town this evening for beers and food truck eats. Sunday will have us tag-teaming birthday parties like we did two weekends ago, with a 38 year-old's soiree early that day and a 2 year-old's bash in the early evening. Should be a great time.
Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
