It being such a lovely spring day in northern New Mexico; I’m easing into spring cleaning. It must be primal, this urge to clean after winter’s elements. First to stow the feather bed, its cover so brittle it begs a third repair, covering the bedroom floor with vacuum defying down. I bought seeds this week, some of them heirlooms: I’ve long aspired for a tres hermanas garden. Google says that is better known as permaculture. Tres hermanas refers to mound group planting with corn, beans and squash. The corn supports the beans and the three sustain and feed each other.
Anyway, I hope your weekend is lovely and productive. Here are the entries published this week over the past six years on this site. If you have more time to delve, there are another 2,000+ in the archives.
