today is your birth day, seeds…

…Is one way i like to think about planting days. teensy seeds are put in soft earth, given a prayer and a hoot, and rained down upon. they are born upon this new field, they swell up, I swoon. they grow up, I watch and tend in loving admiration and awe. little seeds, today is the first day of the rest of your lives. welcome and GOOD LUCK!

In the freshly amended and tilled field today went arugula, mizuna, kale – all intended to be harvested young, six varieties of lettuces – to head up and go to school salad bars (!!!), baby mixed lettuces for cut and come again, and beets. this is the first week’s planting. more, more, to come in successions. fall’s upon us, full moon is UP.
