It’s been crazy around here since school started. Not only has my little one been transitioning to a new school, but I’ve been transitioning to teaching 3 classes at the university this year. Fun, but challenging. 🙂 Teaching is a very fulfilling activity, but it makes me stretch my brain creatively each time I embark on a new semester.
I did somehow manage to get my fall garden in…
Carrots, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, cabbage, Mustard Greens, Arugula, Kale and more!
I was feeling very good about my
lazy hands-off organic approach to gardening until I got an infestation of caterpillars two days ago. How they snuck up on me I’ll never know, but one morning my kale was stripped to the bone.
Well, this gardener has officially gone from ‘lazy’ to ‘organic.’ I’ve spent the last two mornings picking off caterpillars. Yes. You heard me. I’ve gone from hands-off to IT’S ON! in 48 hours. Boom. Then I sprayed some neem oil, added a little plant tone and came back to pick some more. And in gratitude for my new found commitment:
Peace and picking off bugs,
