Yesterday I spent a few hours at the community gardens, installing chicken wire along a stretch of fence, then weeding the garlic plot we planted last November.
I was joined by two plot-holders and their kids, who were exactly the right amount of helpful and complaining about doing garden work, especially on a Saturday. Great kids.
And that was enough to move me from grouchy to grateful. I’m going to schedule daily garden trips for the next few weeks–lots to do, and it turns out it’s the cure for the common grump.
