i put together my first homegrown salad of the season this evening. three types of lettuce, baby kale, dandelion greens and petals, parsley and violas.
i meant to post something about this earlier, but may 1 (today) is international sunflower guerrilla gardening day. gardeners everywhere are encouraged to take some sunflower seeds and plant them on land that isn’t theirs.
i filled a purse with gray stripe seeds and a sharpie (to use as a dibber) and went for a walk with andy. finding good places to put sunflowers was harder than i thought it would be, but i ended up planting around a dozen along an ugly and neglected stretch of parkcenter boulevard (where it leads into bown crossing by the river.) then i took some small, black, unidentified sunflower seeds and scattered them around in that same area.
this has been a hell of a busy week for me. this weekend was especially ridiculous. a lot of really neat and fun experiences that i want to write down sometime, but not right now because i’m exhausted.
