I would never buy such a thing now, so I made one with materials I had on hand (not going anywhere or buying anything much besides food because pandemic). I had a scrap of shower curtain, some outdoor fabric pieces, and an old life-preserver my father-in-law gave me filled with kapok. Kapok, I learned, is fluffy stuff from a tree that grows in the rainforest.
I first sewed a bag out of the shower curtain and filled it minimally with kapok. I wanted some softness, but not a fat pillow. Then I encased the whole thing in the striped outdoor fabric. I meant to put a loop on one end for easier grabbing and carrying, but oh well: such is the state of my brain these days.
My rhubarb is coming out strong. I just planted it last summer, so this is the first spring I will be able to harvest it. I am thrilled!
I babied an expensive little clematis last year, and it appeared to die in August. Oh, I was mad. Now, something green and viney is coming in that space and I think it's the clematis! In this strange spring, I want all the green, growing hope I can find.
Here is Genevieve's new bunny, just a few months old, a mischievous little sweetie. Genevieve named her Daisy Augusta Saoirse Diamond, and is entirely responsible for her. There is so much joy in this relationship! Daisy's poop is going be great in the garden.
I've planted spinach and snow peas in the raised bed, as well as spinach in some containers out front. I also snagged some basil and parsley seeds at the grocery store. This is really all the room I have to start seeds in a sunny location; the rightful occupants of this windowsill are visiting other windows in the house. ￼
