Hello there, nice to see you again. Oh my. It has been a while, hasn’t it? I hope you’re all doing well! I was taking some time off from blogging here, but hope to update this blog more often. Ever since the move up to Oregon, there has been no shortage of activity and I’ve been keeping quite busy. Repotting, cleaning, dividing, building, sorting. Non. Stop. What is really cool is that the plants are finally growing in full force! This is such a welcome sight to see, especially after one helluva winter. (See previous post.) I mean, back in California – I was doing pollinations as early as January. My first flower this year was in June. (Again, one helluva winter that set this growing season back a month or so.)
For now, here’s a snapshot of how the plants are coming along. There’s still plenty of work to do. As you can see, a few tables have been built and about half the collection has been cleaned/ repotted. A few more tables are going to be built, and the other half of the collection will eventually be repotted. 🙂
It is such an incredible feeling to be able to grow plants right in the backyard. Definitely something that I cherish and do not take for granted. For the first time in a very very long time, I feel like things are aligning and I can finally grow properly. The simple joy of just being able to walk out there and to watch the plants do their thing – fantastically beautiful.
So hey – thanks again for checking in! I’m alive, doing well, and the crops be growing quite splendidly up here. So stay tuned, more updates to come!
