Spring 2020 Gardens!


Maggie Mae

Recommended Posts

Because of a combination of climate change and covid-19, we managed to get our garden planted way ahead of schedule! 

And it turns out that my entire city is doing the same thing - all of the nurserys are having trouble keeping starters and seeds in stock for the most popular item (cold weather vegetables). This year we added a few new sections to our garden, tearing up the sod and removing a rhubarb plant (I hate the stuff). So far we've put in potatoes, corn (we grew a ton of corn last year, in our yard, 61degrees north. We also planted peas, beans, spinach, carrots (here's hoping this will be the year!), and pumpkins! 

How is everyone else's projects going?

Yeah we got ours done early this year.  We have stuff coming up already and before too long it'll be ready to start pulling out for delicious meals.

In addition, as I mentioned earlier, my dad and uncle got their planting for the farm done early this year.

I planted cucumbers in our garden this year and they are extraordinary ill-mannered. They really try to survive, but for now that is all the do. My first round of cucumber plants died, because I did put them on the balcony to get used to the outside-weather. The refused and just died right away. And now the second round of cucumber plants is staying alive but they look horrible. Last year my cucumber plants produced about 2 cucumbers. In total. Next year I should try zucchinis. The cucumber plants from my Mum died too. Maybe it is just not the year for cucumbers.

On the plus side: The onions are growing and my thyme is getting bigger and bigger and attracting lots of bees. The pear tree has many pears on it, I hope the won't rot away on the branches, that's what happened the last 2 years. The last 2 years it was a problematic mixture of wasps and warm and wet weather. And there is a spot with wild blueberry branches and another spot with wild peppermint. Oh I can't wait until they are ready to harvest.

      So angry right now.  If I could return to Luxembourg tomorrow and renounce my citizenship in this stinking shitpile of a country I would.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      Yeah, that's me.  Though to be fair I am trying to learn Italian and Spanish.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!
