2012, 25 August
August is almost over. The days of 100 degree temperatures in North Carolina are most likely gone for the year. A few leaves are falling. Pale yellows and a few red ones have blown with the light winds landing on my small front porch, where my little Green Healing garden grows. Amazing how time goes by when you reach a certain age.
Fall planting has begun in Horticulture Therapy. We planted Kale and Radish seeds. The soil is still warm, so these will be good plants to start with. Both are of a variety that will make for a pretty garden. The Radish are ‘White Ice Cicle’ and the Kale will have wide leaves that are rather pale in color compared to the more common green varieties. We’ll enjoy a lovely white (and nutritious) garden if it grows well and I sure hope it does. The garden always offers hope.
Planting seeds is one of my favorite things to do in a garden. I think it is also one of the most hopeful tasks, because there are many events that could cause the seeds not to germinate. The first evidence of germination makes a horticulture heart a happy one! (Click on an image to view Gallery)
