My Garden: Part One



Written By: Michelle, The Green-Mother

"O Lord, grant that in some way
it may rain every day,
Say from about midnight until three o'clock
in the morning,
But, You see, it must be gentle and warm
so that it can soak in;
Grant that at the same time it would not rain on
campion, alyssum, helianthus, lavendar, and others which
You in Your infinite wisdom know
are drought-loving plants-
I will write their names on a bit of paper
if you like-
And grant that the sun may shine
the whole day long,
But not everywhere (not, for instance, on the
gentian, plantain lily, and rhododendron)
and not too much;
That there may be plenty of dew and little wind,
enough worms, no lice and snails, or mildew,
and that once a week thin liquid manure and guano
may fall from heaven.

Yesterday, I made my way over to our local nursery to select my vegetables for my garden.  I had a hard time deciding what to purchase. The nursery had a tempting variety of colorful vegetables in all its isles. I browsed around, and finally decided what I would be planting in my garden this year.

My first pick was the the “Salad Bowl”. I had never seen this before, and I was curious about it.

I asked the the store clerk for some information concerning this product. This is the information that she provided me with concerning the “Salad Bowl”:

– It was their second season selling this product. They still had not heard any feedback yet from previous customers who had purchased this.

– The salad could either be planted in the garden or remain in its bowl for the season.

– The salad will produce more if transported into the garden because it will have more room to grow.

So far, I have decided to keep the salad on the balcony in the backyard. I am still not sure what I will do with it yet.

After shopping  around some more, I selected: broccoli, red tomatoes, and cucumbers. I bought several of each.

Once I arrived at the cash register, I realized that I had almost forgotten to purchase garden gloves. There can be lots of prickly things in the garden that can hurt. These are the gloves that I bought.

After all that shopping, it was time  to get home and change into my gardening attire and start gardening.
