In The Garden & The Three R's

Monday, February 1, 2010

Between rain and thunderstorms, I have managed to get the lettuces in the ground. We have had crisp Romaine with our lentils and brown rice several times now. The kale continues to grow and gift us with fresh, chewy greens. In a few weeks, the spinach and chard should be ready to harvest. I cannot express the joy I receive when I am able to pick all of our herbs, greens and chilies from our patch of earth.

This lovely box was crafted by a young boy and his mother in the garden. The wood came from a small table I purchased at the thrift store for $2! It held icy glasses of mint tea, steaming mugs of Caramel Rooibos Tea with Brown Rice Syrup and lots of half and half for many a season. Yet, alas, the weather got the best of it. We dismantled it and it was transformed into a seedling carrier. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

It really is THAT easy.

I loved that you created something new out of something not only old but thrifted too. Fabulous.
