Beginning a Garden
Gardening is quickly beginning to rival reading for my favorite thing to do when I get home from work. Saturday I spent 8 hours outside working in the sun. A burn, sun poisoning reaction and just feeling sick are the not so pleasant results, but there were some pretty exciting ones too. My roommate and I moved into a rental house that is lovely: peaceful, quiet, out in the country but only 15 minutes away from everything… it’s pretty much perfect. I like to refer to it as “Patty’s Place” (nerdy Anne reference). The yard has not been maintained in years, so we have a lot of catch up work to do. Here’s some of my current progress.
