changing winds

And then after so much winter, the winds shifted and spring finally arrived. Its signs are everywhere here at Baldy Hill Homestead — pots of seeds on the kitchen counter, flip-flops on my feet, snoozing dogs on the lawn, cotton instead of wool on my knitting needles, daylight that stretches past 7 o’clock.

James has been busy planting peas and several varieties of beans. We grew kidney beans on a whim last year and had great success with them, so we decided to go full out this year — chickpeas, azuki, edamame. The expansion means additional plots will need to be dug, but we’re ready. The warm sun on our backs feels sooo good. 🙂
