For such a long time, when people said “I’m too busy”, I didn’t know what that meant. I couldn’t conceptualize how someone couldn’t text back or meet for a quick dinner. Now I understand. For the past few months, I’ve been crazy busy with job number 1 (which is wrapping up this week, yeah!), job number 2 (which takes up at least 2 evenings a week and constant emails), and planning my own wedding. Cooking has been neglected, as is house cleaning, but luckily the garden is growing along just fine with minimal efforts on my part.
Lets take a look, shall we?
- Right outside the chicken coop door is a mass of volunteer tomatoes, pushed outside from their scratching. They have green tomatoes on them, so we have not yet pulled them. We are eager to see what type they are!
- These are two kitties that our apartment neighbor brought home, dumped outside, stopped feeding and then moved. We’ve taken them in and they now rotate from the garden, the food bowl, to the couch and then back outside. We call the grey one Pineapple and the little black one Bacon. Gaia doesn’t seem to mind too much, Gale is perpetually annoyed.
And of course, zucchini. A nice break from the constant Kale, but I wish it grew a bit slower. There seems to be a new squash for very meal!
