It is now mid-April and as with everything these days, I am a little bit behind my self-imposed deadlines. The garden is not in yet as I write, since my husband and I have had difficulty as of late aligning our schedules. Taxes seemed to take precedence, I have a trip coming up, and have been unusually busy with concerts, and patients. But we all get behind sometimes, and even then with attention and care, things usually fall back into balance, at least in my microcosm. One year my garden did not go in until mid-May and I had a really productive garden that year, so one never really knows what will happen.
But it is also OK in a way since the rains and spring moisture have also been behind deadline. Last weekend when I was cleaning up our backyard, I felt the grass in its dehydration actually crunch under my feet. Ground too hard and dry to dig up, I believed, need some moisture to make it a little more workable...
But still some things are predictable. Patients coming in complaining that their seasonal allergies are acting up, blossoming trees, although not as dramatic as in previous years, the first red tulip bloom in our front south facing bed, and with my thoughts about cherry blossoms, I cannot help but think of the triple tragedies in Japan.... Please note that I did post a lot of information on dealing with radiation on my business Facebook page, which is at Tara Skye Goldin, N.D. You may join that page by clicking the link below.
Also note that I will be out of the office Monday 4/18-21. You may call my office to receive the number of the on call naturopath.
