Finally we have a day with slightly cooler temperatures (still hot!) so I can attend to the garden……so many little jobs are outstanding because all I have done for weeks is water… My priorities today were the tomatoes…….the beans and squash got a bit of attention too. And I discovered the joy of spritzing myself with cold water……
Direct sowing continues as does bed preparation and structure building. The business of May shows no signs of slowing. A couple of simple acts of kindness put a huge smile on my face and a bounce in my step……kindness and love make the world go around.
It’s the mad month of May when there is so much to do in the kitchen garden…..the soil has finally warmed up so it’s time to get on with the direct sowings. It’a a wonderful time of year full of hope and optimism and even sunshine.
Finally! We have sunshine and warmth so the race is on to get the last bits of preparation done on the beds ready for some direct sowing and to make sure supports are in place for the climbing plants. It’s also time to simply sit back, do nothing and enjoy being in the garden.
Cooking up a bowl of memories and comfort using veggies from the garden and a recipe learned in a Greek kitchen many years ago……the smell of the thyme as this stew quietly bubbles on the stove transports me to another time and place….
