Late Spring Observations

In her book The Resilient Gardener, Carol Deppe offers a list of 33 Gardening Rules.  Many of these are specific suggestions for gardening logistics.  Two of my favorites are Rule 31: Slow Down, and Rule 32: Notice Everything.

 

In early spring, we had the luxury of time, waiting for the dangers of frost to pass by before getting the temperature-sensitive plants in the field.  Each appearing flower or tiny leaf stood out in all its colorful glory.  As we approach the heat of summer, we have been in a planting frenzy, this past week getting cucumber, squash, bean, tomato, pepper, and tomatillo seeds and plants into the garden.  Luckily, we have still been able to take the time to notice the many wonders around us.
