I went to the Children's Garden today, just like I have nearly every Friday for the past five years. You can learn a lot by gardening with kids. And a little bit of what you learn is actually about gardening.
Today, I learned--or, at least, was reminded--that the harvest is the most exciting part of the garden year. There were shrieks, giggles, oohs, and ahhs for each radish that was yanked from the ground and every squash that was wrestled off the vine. A good time was had by all, and I was lucky enough to be there to join in.
Hopefully, the rest of my weekend will involve a little knitting, a little cooking, and some top secret maneuvers that involve my man's quickly approaching birthday. If I have any extra time, here's what I'd like the rest of my to-do list to look like:
Make a moose. Or, okay, a deer.
Trick you-know-who into eating eggplant.
Dream of cheese.
Repaint the bedroom.
Start a new collection.
Buy another sewing book. And also, learn to sew.
Here's hoping you all have a lovely weekend. See you next week!
