Things didn’t work out at the farm for my son. I was disappointed and I guess he was too. I think we’re both feeling better as I write.
He has a job interview tomorrow. He’s excited and I’m hopeful. Sometimes you gotta go with the flow.
I’m sure we’ll both miss getting to know the animals. The goats were so sweet!

The cows were beautiful. I like cows.
We decided to do a little horticultural healing at home. My son planted a few Marigolds in two planter boxes. He also fixed them so they fit perfectly on the deck’s side-rail. I think men like fixing things.
We both planted Thyme. I love this plant for several reasons. It’s hardy, grows fast, smells nice and makes pretty blooms. It has medicinal value and of course, we can use it for cooking.
We tended to our containers of Chamomile, Chives, Lavender and a wonderful ground cover called Carpet Mint. I really like that Mint. It feels like soft carpet and is spreading quickly.
We planted Black Mammoth Sunflower seeds in a large container, a few in our front garden and some in the ground along the walkway from the back door.
The dirt is dry where I live and the trees are many, so it’s pretty hard to grow anything other than moss. We also have moles, and they ate all my plants when I first moved here. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the Sunflowers.
I’m looking forward to a move in the near future. I do not know where we’ll go yet, but I sure hope I can find a place with a sunny spot for a garden. I’d also like to have a small greenhouse and enough space for some critters.
For now, we live in the moment, taking each day as it comes. When you don’t have much money and you have health issues, as far as I can tell, the moment is where to live.
