Since we haven’t moved yet and spring is here I’m in a predicament about starting seeds. Everything is packed away in a pod. Yes. Even my seeding trays and soil. But certainly not my seeds, I’d never leave my seeds somewhere inaccessible. This season I’ll be building beds, filling them with soil, and buying prestarted plants from some local farms. That should make your first garden pretty easy too. I’ll also be cleaning up my hives and building a new coop for our chickens. My new coop = your new coop You can follow along with me. And I’ll be designing our yard and garden from scratch too. So you can see how I go about designing the space. I come at it through a permaculture leaning. But today I’ll do one of my favorite pass times… I’ll walk my old garden and observe my plants. Who’s greening up and sprouting up first? So with tea in hand let’s take a look… Straight down the steps the first plot I come to is under my Ash. My horehound is greening up and another I don’t k...

The spring equinox has come and just today I saw my first spring flower, a purple crocus smiling up at the warm sun. The twittering familiar sound of the robins is here and I can finally sit on my back deck in the sun and write. But this spring is different. This is my first spring with Arya. A chickadee prunes itself and I turn to glance at the yard. Seven raised beds, an apple tree, a forest garden filled with medicinal herbs and perennial fruits, my chickens pecking in the dirt beside their pen. Ten years in the making, this. But this spring is different. This spring we’re moving. Leaving all we’ve created behind. And this spring is different because It’s the spring that I’m going to start teaching you. Moving to a new home with a new infant seems like the perfect place to start. From scratch. I’ll build garden beds and greenhouses with you and her. I’ll start new plants, design new paths, coops, and hives. I’ll help you and your young family get your hands dirty. Dig for ...

The first day of spring, a full moon, and my life, our lives, are in disrupted chaos. I can’t seem to figure out in which direction to run. There are so many things to do and so much I’d rather be doing. The bus drives by out the bay window adding to my annoyance. That bus never came down our street in a decade of living here and now in this past month, like clockwork every 30 minutes its new route pesters me like a torn cuticle. Just one more layer of annoyance. Add the constant flux in this once familiar home, now just a house I can’t wait to run from, despite the tearing of my heart strings as the flowers just begin to pop their leaves above the ground to scream, “Take us with you!” But plants once planted should stay where they are. So instead I have to turn my back on them as if the present is already the past. Yet I want to cling to it. This spring should be magical. I look over at Arya’s fresh pink cheeks and think of the rose petals or the fresh spring seedlings still ...
