Pea Tendrils and other stories

The peas have tendrils. They got them in one day. The weather has been drawing them out.

The calendula has sprouted! We have a big planter full of calendula that reseeds itself each year. That’s columbine you see leafed out in exuberance in the planter with it.

Also, we were gifted this new worm bin from a friend of mine. We met several years ago at Berrydale Community Garden. She ran the Produce for People plot and I helped her out.

The worm bin is lovely. We have been raising worms now for about six months. My husband wants to divide our red wriggler population between the two bins. It’s exciting and low pressure, all at the same time. I’m happy to expand our community of helpers here on this little plot of land.
