At Long Last… an Update

May 28, 2010

Hi all 🙂
May has been quite the month….Concerts, exciting knitting, and not feeling especially good has made it a bit difficult to write much….

Let me just give you a peek at the latest in the garden… Diane and David are clearing a bit of the earth to do some planting for themselves this summer… We still do not have water for the space…

    Hi Liz,
    I checked in today after a long absence from your site. Love the music and the shawl and the garden. I hope yoga becomes more comfortable for you. I wonder if you’d be interested in the following interview about yoga on “Speaking of Faith”. The host, who interviews Matthew Sanford, says, “He has wisdom for us all on knowing the strength and grace of our bodies even in the face of illness, aging, and death.”
    Thinking fond thoughts of you!

    Wish we could get some of the extra water we had this spring out to you. I hope something works out. The space looks great for a garden.

    I’m sorry to hear you haven’t been feeling great. Bummer. Hope the summer sun will help.

    Cheers to you both,

        “You guys are getting far too much wet weather…”

        But you should see how the spinach loves it!

        Yes, rain barrels are good, though they can be tricky to set up high enough to make sure gravity takes the water all the way to where you want it. Carrying buckets of water clearly won’t be good for that arm!

    Hi Angela… Hopefully rain barrels are in our future… I just have not had time these past few weeks to do anything about them…
    We do want to check out the natural mattress… I think about it often….Let’s talk soon and set up a date… And it will be fun to visit.

      Rain barrels work. We have two. One was ordered from a catalog. Ours hold about 55 gallons each. They got yucky and really needed a scrubbing this spring- probably needed cleaning last fall. They do collect water and allow you to cover dry spells. Overall we are quite happy with ours.

      How is your garden now?

    I forgot to comment on this post earlier. Fences! Are there deer there? The suckers are voracious and eat everything, especially in the fall at harvest time.

      Hi Rich 🙂 there are lots of deer around, and they are all eating larger gardens than ours 🙂

        Be watchful. Dear avoid your stuff when there are other food sources around, however, they eat everything in late august and early September. I had tomato plants that they left alone right up to the end of August and then the ate them. I guess because winter is coming they need to eat everything. Actually, the bears do the same. you don’t (for the most part) see them during the summer but, once fall comes… Man, they are eating garbage, plants, tearing up rock walls looking for chipmunks, you wouldn’t believe it.
