#Spring #Gardening

After last night’s hail storm (Nathan saw some as big as golf balls), I wanted to work in my garden this morning before work. It is weeded, ready for planting, though I still need to trim out the herb garden:


Everything was okay, though, and I was excited to see my first plants still thriving. I pulled out the last of the carrots and potatoes, grateful for a mild winter that fed us all season.

Even a stray one on the path!


The strawberries spread out more this year!


Soon we will have strawberries everyday for breakfast. It made me miss my mom. She always said that was the real reason she moved int


Onions and leeks are already growing:


And the herb garden is taking off!

We have rosemary:


And oregeno


And basil:


All those are already full-grown on their own from last year! Yummy!

I will plant corn and the first round of beans later this week, and am so excited for gardening season to finally be here. It is always so healing to me.

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
