So I did a whole lot of nothing the other day. I started out weeding around some of my baby shrubberies and then this pile of rocks by my front steps called out to me. They had been laying there for so long. I spent the next four hours stacking stones just to see what would appear.
So I accomplished nothing productive and for the four hours I was stacking stones I thought about nothing productive, no chores, no jobs, no garden strolls, nothing.
My only thoughts were about how to make these rocks balance.
The thing is ugly, really ugly. I so wish at times I had fancy flat and rectangular rocks, but I don't. These are the rocks I got. I imagine in its next life this thing will become part of a new wall I have planned. I certainly don't want this ugly thing by my front door permanently. It is surprisingly steady though. Doesn't even wiggle.
Then it became boring.
Time to head to the roadside vegetable garden to seed the new empty rows where the taters were. It's getting quite lush in there behind the wildflower surround. I ate my first ripe cherry tomato. Quite delish.
Yes some where in all that vegetable lush are two whole empty rows. I seeded carrots, parsnips, radish and two kind lettuce. I think I should seed some more cucumbers. They have been so ornery this year. Maybe it is warm enough for them now.
Now I can meditate on water. The rains have been too sporadic for seed germination so these new rows will need to be kept moist.
