I find it amusing that as I resurrect this blog, I read an article today that the ONE THING you should not do in 2018 is start a blog. I think I can skip that stricture as I’m not really starting a blog, right? I’m just continuing the life of this one.
That said, too bad I have already taken a hiatus. The break was actually for a good cause. I’ve spent the last two days in the garden, Friday at a community garden and Thursday preparing for my first presentation in my new Bees in the Urban Garden series.
So, Wednesday I went to the Historical Village and had a blast. Thursday, we were at the library for the presentation.
It was a great turnout, with about 24 people present. The worst thing was walking into that room, all by myself and realizing I not only had to set up all my equipment, books, and coffee maker. I also had to set up chairs, podium and move the cart of tables in the middle of the room! Thankfully, it was accomplished (because I was, miracle of miracles, early). My kind husband and friends facilitated the break down.
Friday, we had a blast at From the Ground Up, a community garden here in Pensacola. We spent an hour or so talking with scholars about bees and flower pollination. I hope they had as much fun as I did! It was the slightest bit sticky when I realized I was discussing sexual reproduction of flowers with fourth graders. Oops.
Today and yesterday, I spent working in the garden, trying to get things ready for our beautiful Florida spring. Here are a few photos of where we are now:
So, we have lots of room for green things to grow. Also, I have 25 collard green plugs and 25 cabbage plugs to plant. I absolutely can NOT tell them apart. Maybe I actually have 50 of one plant? Wouldn’t that be lovely? 😉
