September Harvest

image

The first collective harvest of season one. Beets, baby spinach, kale and baby beet greens. It was a late planting but the squash is developing and the pumpkins should be coming around soon. They are in the barrel to the side of the raised bed which was originally intended for compost and fill dirt for the bed. Well I composed my Halloween pumpkins from last fall and to my surprise I now have a lovely pumpkin patch. Cucumbers are taking over the bed and are happy and cool so I am thinning things around them to make room. Next years garden plan is underway and will be giving everything a bit more room with two new raised beds, herb garden, green house and main flower bed for replanting around the yard. Apparently the Marigolds I planted in the raised bed LOVE the chicken manure that was mixed into my own compost soil
+ store bought garden soil. Good combo. The Marigold are giants and so big I need to transplant them elsewhere!  I’m tired of my dirt back yard and more landscaping is in order. Hummmm dreaming of a lush green lawn….maybe next year.

Random Things I love, have, want, and or otherwise DIY’d and The Police

Talk, meet, call, engage, network, produce, think… critically think, create, draw, layout, photograph, edit, write, moderate, reply, S T O P.    …Work, meet, call, engage, produce, think… critically think, layout , draw, create, photograph, edit, write, tweet,  moderate, reply, S T O P. Time to reflect……

Enjoy. Happy Summer Soltice to one and all.

Today I stopped and smelled the roses per say. For a second. It’s the longest day of the year and my favorite day outside of Fall and Spring here in the high desert. The garden is growing[first] and my aries persona is beaming, [Thanks to many friends and family that are rooting].   The day is as long as the birds are singing , networks are expanding and a resolve is in sight….s t o p. Someone asked me the other day how it was possible to process all those tweets everyday….I couldn;’t answer yet I do do do,  however in hindsight…the answer is that the brain is big and mostly unused….  Too much food for thought though sometimes. yes. Knowledge is pain. Seek Bliss.

As I sit in my favorite garden chair and write at about 8:45 pm and the sun is still up and feeling that twilight coming on i remember to take the time to reflect. And slowly write. as it taken me 24 hours to finish…

I have gathered a few photos of the moment……. loves, wants, haves, and DIY’s for you to see. [and probably again on Pinterest soon…..or twitter or my gallery site … maybe FB.]   Keep moving but remember to always S  T  O  P. and enjoy.

OOOh…just felt a minute earthquake…..yikes none felt since 2007…..wild! [note to self…must attach earthquake strap to mid century hutch my Dad built.]
