The garden is a metaphor for life, and gardening is a symbol of the spiritual path. ~ Larry Dossey ~
A rarecold Spring storm may bring some much needed rain and snow to our area!!! The cool weather and showers will be a welcomed respite from the unseasonably hot temps that we experienced early in the week. So, today in anticipation of the rain tonight we’ll be transplanting, planting and tending the garden.
Once the Summer plantings are done, we can then turn our time and energy to new paths towards self-sufficiency… One of the major steps we are studying about now is solar panels. California has a rebate/incentive program (paying 50%) for those interested in installing solar systems, so we are really looking into purchasing solar — hopefully soon. We’ve been reading books and researching different systems and getting estimates — which in itself has been quite a learning experience for us who are truly “solar-dummies”… but hopefully not for long!
Weather Report: Overcast, cool with a chance of rain tonight. 57º
