About hammy

Oh... what makes me tick? I dunno. Apricots, bunnies, chai, daffodils, epiphanies, fleece, gardens, humming, ink, juice, knitting, laugh, mail, nouns, ovals, poppies, quests, rides, sewing, turquoise, upholstery, vines, winks, X, yeast, zinc... a general smattering of this and that. I'm busy learning things, digging my fingers into everything and making myself busy.

Raised Beds

Last weekend Dad put together a few raised beds for the backyard! One is 3 x 5 feet and the other is 3×3. Delightful. I ordered organic soil from Dean Innovations here in Portland and started filling the beds yesterday morning.I planted all the starts that are big enough later that afternoon. There are two tomatoes, two tomatillos, nasturtiums, lettuce, arugula, broccoli, kohlrabi, a fennel plant, marigolds and johnny jump ups  in the larger box.

And chard, leeks, nasturtium, broccoli, kohlrabi, johnny jump ups and chamomile in the smaller box. I also have a happy artichoke plant in a large terracotta pot. I can’t wait for things to really take off in a week or two!

Evening

The bunnies are loose in the apartment…

First, I want you to revel in all of Linus’ glory… and then you should notice all the FUR in the air. It’s that time of year, time for a shave this weekend.

Seriously.
