Garden Dreaming (31 Days of Nest Building: day 22)
Today was beautiful--sunny, warm, absolutely perfect temperature for being outside. I soaked it up while working in the community garden in my “old” town. I’ve worked in the garden there for the past few years and, since the move, it’s been two months since I’ve seen it.
Two friends and I cleared the garden beds, pulling the old plants for the compost pile, saving the last of the tomatoes, eggplant, butternut squash, chard, kale, and parsley. We pulled a soil sample to send for testing. It was a great way to spend the afternoon.
I didn’t plant a garden this year because we were moving. Now I’m looking ahead to the spring to start one at the new place. I think I’ll spend the next season deciding where to plant and figuring out what I will need to get started.
Throughout October, I will be continuing this story of getting acquainted with my home and making it my own as part of the 31 days challenge. Catch up on any posts you may have missed here: 31 Days of Nest Building.
