Spring Waxing Flower Moon
Went on a mission today. That’s Kate and mine’s language for a frustrating shopping experience focused on finding a particular thing. Today I wanted inoculant for the peas and other legumes we’ll plant. This inoculant, actually live bacteria, enables the peas to turn nitrogen back to the soil. I mentioned it a few posts ago.
Many places don’t have it. I didn’t phone ahead, so that’s on me, but I did locate packages of inoculant at the Green Barn, near Isanti. Kate and I shop there often for the garden, but it’s a long way to go for just one thing. So, I bought some onion sets, too.
Back home I made a batch of chicken noodle soup, moved furniture out to the garage for the great garage sale and read a graphic novel, a memoir of Yoshiro Tatsumi, a force in the world of manga and gekeiga. I found the book uneven, but a fascinating glimpse into Japan as it has grown and changed over the last 70 years or so.
