Yarn Along (no.19)

by Josée

Yesterday I worked in a small patch of dirt that had managed to free itself from the piles of snow in my front yard. The smell of the moist dirt was refreshing and there were even a few brave tulips pushing through the soil. Then this morning I work up to a fresh blanket of snow on the ground. It looks like gardening is still on hold for a while. That doesn’t mean I can’t dream of it though. This year I’m planning to plant mostly herbs and some greens (spinach, swiss chard, kale, and lettuce). Our lot doesn’t get much sun so I need to be creative with container gardening.

As I dream about Spring and gardening I’m making good progress on Sweetpea’s Sorello shirt and reading The Dirty Life: A Memoir of Farming, Food, and Love. Now I have to add farming to my day dreaming. Spring. Gardening. Farming.
