garden update

Ran out in the rain yesterday to scatter coffee around the seedlings, protect them from slugs. It worked. They're all ok today: eggplant, basil, tomato, and bean.

Peonies, not yet, almost. My favorite flower. The lush ephemeral blossoms, symbiotic ant relationship, and dark glossy leaves. The fragrance.

Morning glory, marigold, and sunflowers sprouted. Harvesting spinach and could do kale.

Potato in hay seems to be working. Lots of potato sprouts in there, along with the morning glory.

Neighbor most unhelpfully whacked the streetside seedlings along the fence. I might have expressed anger, just for that day.

The garden is a glory of color, energy, peace, and future abundance.
