Green thumb.

I am so excited to finally have a garden this year. We've always really wanted to plant one but never have had the space, time, motivation, etc. This year, our neighbors signed up for a plot in our community garden, and we're lucky enough to be splitting the plot with them. At first, I was really nervous because I tend to kill every plant I lay a hand on, but now, after several weeks, we're starting to see some growth and progress! We even have a few green tomatoes sprouting. The plants that surprise me the most are the ones we planted from seed - beets, lettuce, and green beans. I doubted that we'd ever see them seemed so unlikely. But sure enough, Mother Nature is hard at work, and we've got growth! There's something really beautiful about gardening, and I don't think I ever really appreciated the idea of growing my own food until now. I also have found a lot of parallels with pregnancy and the peace that comes with nurturing a life. Grow, seedlets, grow!

Our first strawberry!

  1. Need some lettuce? I think we may have overdone it a little ;)
