First day of Sparrow Grass

Things are coming along nicely under the lights. Diamond Eggplants look good.

Baby Miniature Martie Forest

We lament the non existence of the Lacuna Sabbath yesterday. I had to work. There were very good moments and very crap moments. The crap parts mostly involved planning consultants, male egos, little man syndrome (not to be confused with "little men" who fix stuff and delivery stuff), people who are obsessed with making money and are jealous of anyone who is, people who appear nice and sunny on the surface, but erupt with rage and venom and people with chips of their shoulders. It sounds like lots of people, but it was only one. One with all these lovely attributes.

I got to practice being a duck and letting their waves of rage wash over me. But it was harrowing and I am grateful the biggest hippy was there when I dropped in for a glass of wine, a rant and some tears on the way home. I am lucky to know and work with some pretty awesome humans.

In other news, the first little nubs of asparagus emerged this morning. I have covered them up with straw now....but soon my little darling soon. Welcome to SPRING

An a couple of hours down at the garden talking seedlings, inspecting various varieties of purple and green cauliflower, picking parsnips and being given purple taties...well, its all one needs to smooth the ruffled feathers.

that is all. for now.
