Welcome Spring, 2022!
Hello friends! It’s been a while since I’ve made any updates here. I have to confess, things got a bit overwhelming for me health-wise during Pandemic Life. I was diagnosed with Polyglandular Autoimmune Syndrome (specifically Schmitt’s Syndrome). I’m in the early stages of the disease and we can be hopeful that it won’t get worse but it’s also a rare disease we don’t know enough about anyway… sooooo…. who knows? My doctors sure don’t.
My health was/is further complicated by the fact that I had my 6th or 7th concussion. We’re really not sure anymore. But long story short, my health scene has been a shit show. Sorry for the cursing, Mom.
Thankfully, we seem to have found some therapies to keep my body stable and improve my overall wellbeing, even if I will never be back to my “old self.” So now, I’m back to enjoying my garden! Which is what I actually want this blog to be about. I have big plans for this year and I hope to build up some community around some of these plans.
Here’s what I’m hoping to get started!
1. Community Spotlights (see the newly made page about this – and let me know if you see typos because I put it up pretty fast)
2. Seed Library – launching 2023; I’m looking for seed donations, partner farmers, and patrons who want free seeds in exchange for participating
3. Community Litter Clean Ups
4. Gardening & seed saving workshops, with a focus on minimal water use and locally adapted food crops
Are you interested in any of that?
I can keep you updated on specific things if you sign up for my new, improved email subscription. The old one did not appear to be working so I made a new one through MailChimp. Sign up and I’ll send updates whenever there is something relevant to say.
That’s all for now. I think.
What are your plans for spring?
