There is news from the garden - Chocolate peppers are finally appearing! Can you see them? Top left cell and bottom middle cell.
In other news I've started gathering containers to get an idea of what I have. My plan is to start labeling containers with the intended resident plant. I read in my container garden book about using trash cans for potatoes. We have a large trash can on the patio now that we aren't using. I'll wash it out and disinfect and then we'll have our potato pot.
Finally I wrapped up Sunday with my new yarn bag. I wanted something bright and cheery for the season. I found this sweet chicken fabric online and had to have it. If I can't have hens yet, I can at least have a fun yarn bag. This time I made it wider, taller and improved on things that I wished I had done before. Of course I forgot to take pictures while it was in progress. Here is the end product.
We had quite an intense weekend. Mister and I had committed to starting a social justice project with our new faith community. The conversation was very intense, hard but very good. I feel like I grew so much from having that experience. On Sunday we met with the minister to talk about joining the congregation. I never, ever would have thought that I would join a "church" - never. But this place is different and welcomes diversity in belief, and people. It is a good fit for Mister and I. We have felt so welcome and it doesn't wig me out the way a lot of other organized religious bodies have in the past. We've found some community and people we are beginning to connect with. This is a good thing. Perhaps in the future we will not have to go through things alone. I signed up to provide care and concern for other members in need. I do not want anyone to have to worry about feeding themselves while grieving like Mister and I did. Why don't people send casseroles anymore? We should could have had some when my father passed. So I will do unto others and feed them in times of need.
