Garden Journal

Maria needed a homework break. Lately she's been feeling easily rattled, a bit distressed by this and that. My solution, tonight? A visit to the garden, where she kicked the soccer ball, pulled weeds, fed bunnies, and planted peas. It's cold outside and damp from last night's shower. Good pea weather, I hope. The hens came running to greet us. They're fun company in the garden. A chicken can lift your spirits, as much as dirt, sprouts, and carrots, so I think this time was well spent.

Seeds and sprouts, harvests and feasts~

Sounds very relaxing. Someday, I hope we live in a place we can grow some food in a garden.
