Life is havin’ a party!

As David Yarrow said today, “Mother Nature is having a party,” as he referred to all the flowering plants. Bees, butterflies hummingbirds, hummingbird moths, dragonflies, and us, were all in attendance at the party. There was even a newcomer, who I hadn’t seen before. He was a little late, but late is better than never, and since he carries his house with him…it doesn’t really matter when he gets anywhere…

This time with organic and permaculture expert David Yarrow has been a real learning experience. And we’ve been working! In addition to finishing a composition this week, continuing work on the basement so I can move the rest of my stuff from Kansas City, and cooking amazing new kinds of super nutrient rich foods, we’ve been building lasagna beds. When I first heard of these, I thought: “cool!…I wont have to spend hours layering all those ingredients and then baking!” But, alas…i’m not going to be able to grow lasagna after all. These beds are thin layer upon thin layer of raw ingredients from grass clippings to manure, and straw to biochar. These puppies will be ready to plant in no time,  a year ahead of schedule! So much for planning, but along with Mr. T-tle, i’m happy just to go with the flow and do whatever seems like the next thing to do.

Oh, and I moved all three of those stepping stones from out in the woods or along the east fenceline. All of them were either lose on the ground, or actually sticking up, and were practically asking to be brought down to the garden. The heaviest one behaved by balancing and holding still while I moved him the furthest of any. He is really happy there now, as the anchor for the whole garden!

Harmony is demanding, but she is also generous with her gifts. The first of the fruits was deliciously prepared by Tracy Rasmussen). It didn’t last long…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All in all, things are changing wonderfully at Harmony Farm, and this work is amazingly satisfying gratitudifying!
