Spring Planting

We've started a huge veggie garden in the yard, a lot bigger than in previous years. We'll still have some things in pots and the herb plot is going strong. With Merc going direct today (YEAH!) things will get easier as far communication and transportation (y'all know I keep up with Astro stuff). I'm also planting by the moon from my Almanac and boosting all the little plants' with "companions" around them. Sort of like writing a story from an outline that you've pulled in different elements to use. I sat in a couple of lectures and have read a lot about the companion planting technique over the years, but I've never really tried it to this extent.

Along with gardening to help keep down the grocery bills, my work has kept me running. Writing new pages is hard, and forget about editing right now. All focus is on the basics of life. And it's amazing how much "disposable" income is revealed when you really look at a household budget. So far, so good. One day at a time, lots of baby plants to nurture, one page of writing at a time. Eventually I think it'll all turn out right.
