Desiccation and Desecration

Laura Ingalls Wilder once asked: "Did you ever think how a bit of land shows the character of the owner?"

It's a question I prefer to ignore.

What does my desiccated, desecrated garden say about me? Perhaps it says Matt and I moved to Colorado in June, unpacked our entire lives and built a garden in a week, spent all day every day in Montessori training through June, July, and August, moved into and organized our classrooms, and started our first year of teaching in a Montessori classroom.

Excuses, excuses. At least my quasi-valiant attempt inspired one person to start a garden. And she actually followed-through on her attempt. That makes me feel a little better.
