My garden is growing… although not as quickly as so many beautiful gardens I see on blogs and flickr. I can’t help but sometimes wonder if I’m doing something wrong. Of course I realise it has more to do with where I live than anything else. Gardening on the north coast is just another one of those things I’m learning about as I go.
I’m growing beets, kale, chard, peas, garbanzo beans, garlic chives, basil, cilantro, tomatoes, tomatillos and various flowers and medicinal herbs.
Last weekend Lily excitedly went in a soapbox race. She was a lot smaller than most of the other drivers but that never got in her way. Her face was never without a smile the whole time she was in that pink flaming car.
I’m in love with my new bike that finally came last week. It’s a Kona Lisa Road and super fast and light. I often feel like I’m flying. I have much to learn about road riding but with Cam’s help I’ll learn quickly. I’m looking forward to adding a regular riding routine to my time.
This seems to be a slow time of year for a lot of bloggers, which I’m actually kind of grateful for. I don’t get on the computer as much these days so it’s nice to not be overwhelmed with reading when I do get the chance. That said, I have a lot I want to blog about. Some of it seems like too much time has past to take the time to write about it but then I remember that blogging for me is in part a journal for myself.
I hope you all are having a wonderful spring/ pre-summer like we are!
