Chaos in the Garden

While I was gone, the garden tipped towards chaos, as it always eventually does. The point where the weeds and harvesting become overwhelming. I expect having 5 1/2 inches of rain on Saturday helped things along. I've picked zucchini and okra, and 17 cucumbers from what I'm pretty sure is one plant. The tomatoes and beans will have to wait. One of my massage clients recently asked for any cucumbers that were big & yellow, as she makes cucumbers with them. I'll set her right up tomorrow.

There were some wonderful synchronicities while I was on vacation. I went to Virginia Beach to take a massage course at A.R.E., which was cancelled at the last minute. But I met the most delightful woman who was attending another seminar there, and was full of positive energy about the upcoming times. I would have loved to have talked with her for hours, as it's not often I meet someone else who is positive about the future. For sure, we are and will likely continue having challenges in birthing this new world, but I have the utmost faith that we will get there. It put wind in my sails to meet a kindred spirit. Wishing you hopeful days, friends!

Sorry to hear the class was cancelled, it must be wonderful to spend time at the ECF. You must be in a good rain belt, on Busbee we got good rain but not 5" I don't think!

Hey- glad you had a great trip.
You will have to fill me in.
Yep I took a good spill the other night-
I was looking at our small gardens today and wished I could "bend" to weed them.
