To Plant A Garden Is To Believe In Tomorrow

I love my garden. It is my space. Every night at dusk I love watering it with my heavy watering can, the drops of water spilling out as I carry it, sprinkling my toes. In the morning I rush out to check for new strawberries and fresh peas. I collect herbs and greens lovingly before dinner. I've even embraced weeding and practice meditation while I work and can often be out there for hours just working before it even occurs to me that the kids might need me.

Here is a link to a post I made early in the growing season last year. I have to say that the garden will be one of those memories that stay with me forever. Here are a few of my favorite photos from last year's garden. I make altered books (if you don't know- google some images) and I am making one with all of my garden info, plans and photos. (I make a ton of these and they are on going projects often taking years to complete.) I am also making a cookbook Zine which has a chapter with favorite recipes for garden goodies and uses some of these photos.

I am catching up on old posts I never finished. I also hope to catch up on posting about this years garden. I am also tagging and organizing all the photos from the past 3 years on the mac. I wish I had kept up with this from the beginning. Switching to a mac has been difficult. 
Projects are abound around here.
