One my many sacrifices to the angry god that is blogging was my garden.
Over a period of years I painstakingly built up 175 square feet of raised beds out of the compacted sod, clay and cobbles in my backyard, and one of my greatest joys was eating and sharing the produce of my labor: raspberries, tomatoes, peas, lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, mustard, kale, radishes, arugula, green beans, herbs, and of course, zucchini… more zucchini than one family can ever eat, and always more than I ever intend to grow.
But between the demands of the blog and the dog, my garden has laid fallow over the past two years.
Well, no more. This year I vowed to reclaim my yard and garden, and so far have kept my resolution. And I’m loving it.
So if, occasionally, on sunny days like today, I disappear for a few hours… you’ll know where I am.
