April 12

Now that the leaves and last year’s mulch have been cleared, we pressure washed the cement and deck, pulled as many rocks and weeds out of the dirt and added potting soil to everything….it’s time to plant the flowers and herbs before it’s too late! We have a week of sun right now, so I’m taking advantage of the weather and getting outside. The herbs will all be in pots in case it gets too cold and I have to bring them inside. The flowers will be planted in my pre-made flower bed, and I’m going to buy a baby olive tree at the PCRF [Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund] gala this upcoming weekend. I’m not really sure where to put the olive tree but I know I want one! Plus, it’s bought for charity and peace, so I just have to do it!

Yep, that’s me squatting like a Vietnamese pro…both feet planted on the ground.
