Well… May has turned to June and we have seen lots of June bugs, but that isn’t all that is happening here.
We have fruit and berries popping and the veggies are planted. So many colourful blooms and the fragrance of lilacs wafts through the air. I have planted many kinds of potatoes this year, which is a new experience for me. I have also started my very own sweet potato slips as well, so excited to see how well they grow this summer!
We have not found “the” house in Nova Scotia yet, but we are looking and planning on making a return trip at the end of the June/ beginning of July. I have to admit that I am finding that patience is not one of my strongest qualities and I am getting a little frustrated. I know what I want and what I want to spend, as well as I know where I am willing to compromise on what I want, but it hasn’t shown up yet.
Our house here is causing me a little stress in that it is torn apart while I try to sort and purge what I don’t need to take with us, not the easiest thing when you don’t know what you will need. We have taken to doing the outside work as a way to feel as though we have some control of our environment and it is helping a little.
Speaking of gardens, I was able to go to my favorite Hosta sale and I purchased 18 new Hosta’s. I love what they offer to a garden, quite a bang for the buck. Did you know that some varieties are edible? I will post more about that in my next blog post and maybe a few other edibles to forage for this season. Until then…
