So I’ve been obviously neglecting the blog- and frankly my garden for a few weeks. There’s a very easy explanation- I had a very bad migraine that kept me inside for a while and when I had recovered, the air was so unhealthy in San Francisco that I found staying outside to do more than a cursory watering unbearable. On the days when the air is clearer and I’m not at work, (a rare confluence) I’m forced to do a weeks worth of garden chores in a few hours. You can see the flecks of ash on my blue basil- most mornings a new layer comes.
I know this blog is niche and not super popular- and yet I’ve had many good conversations with the few of you who keep up with it and I’m sorry that I’ve been unable to keep up with posting. I wish I could say when I can resume regular posting, but considering how fire season is just beginning- I can’t make any promises.
I’ve built a new plant stand and I have tons of starts for fall and winter planting… and they’re all mostly still in their six-packs and 4″ pots as I carefully tend them waiting for better air so I can plant them all properly.
Fingers crossed for better air- and if you can please support the people who’ve lost everything in these fires in California.
