The garden is coming along nicely and growing gangbusters. All the starts have been in for a couple weeks, but I do have a few other things to plant yet like beans and a late crop of potatoes for storage.
Still - there are only so many hours in the day and there’s one section we hadn’t quite gotten to yet and so let’s just say it was a thriving ecosystem of volunteers 😳.
We tackled that section last week and in amongst the volunteer potatoes (oops! apparently a few got left in the ground last fall), shoulder high thistles, copious amounts of pig weed, and thriving creeping clover, we found this little gem.
These are the kinds of things that make this life so worth it - right in amongst all the hard work (and often clearly because of it), we find beauty and delight and awe.
