Dylan moved to New York with most of his stuff in old wooden crates, and while we made a bookshelf out of most of them, there was one left over. We hung onto it for 6 months, thinking we’d eventually turn it into a planter. It took Dylan leaving for a 10-day California trip for my mom and I to decide to finally plant a little garden. We headed to the Union Square Greenmarket this morning for seedlings. Clockwise from the top, strawberries, swiss chard, and eggplant.
Moses soon interfered.
I couldn’t resist buying a few types of heirloom tomatoes, even though I had already grown two tomato plants at home from seeds. There are going to be so many tomatoes now! We also picked up two more planters because the one wood crate just wouldn’t fit all of these plants. So excited to see everything grow.
My friend Mia Christopher recently sent me an amazing package full of all sorts of things she makes — stickers, postcards, cat earrings, and this beautiful wood panel painting. I’ve been wearing the earrings nonstop, and they can be found in her Etsy shop along with an assortment of other handmade earrings.
The little people have found a temporary home over the love seat in the office. Eventually I’ll move the painting somewhere smaller where it fits better and is easier to look at. We’ve updated this corner a bit more since we first posted about the studio last month. We have few new plants (including one in this Geo Planter I’ve been wanting forever), and the Modkat litter box for Moses (that yellow thing in the bottom left, so pretty you probably didn’t know it was a litter box).
