Speaking of healing, my brain is still in adjustment mode, and I'm still not able to read your blogs. I'm so sorry, I miss you all. The surgeon says I'm very close. I'm getting very impatient. Ha, what an understatement.
So here is a little bite of what I have been up to. I harvested some nettles the other day. I read that they are best when they are small and tender. I had the great idea of dehydrating them, but then read that you have to blanche them to destroy the stingers. So here they are in the ice bath.
I drove my Ladybug lawnmower out past the sloughs with a load of yardwaste for the burn pile, pulling my JennyMac 2000 wagon. What a gorgeous day it was! After dumping my load and turning around, I discovered one of the wheels had come off the wagon! Had to go back to the shop to find a cotter pin to repair it.
The farmers who rent my land were busy planting onions and carrots.
This fell out of one of the big Douglas Firs the other day. I don't know if this is a birds nest or a squirrel's, but isn't it beautiful? I'm so glad they appreciate all of the colorful bits of fiber that get loose when I'm dying.
Well, so far I have planted 4 kinds of potatoes, Jeruselem Artichokes, cabbage, cauliflower, peas, romaine, lettuce, and pac choi. Nothing has germinated yet, but we are going to have five days of warmth coming up, so I am hopeful.
