With all the chaos in the world, it has become a time to appreciate the simpler things in life, for those of us not on the front lines of the coronavirus fight. It is the small things that can bring comfort.
I am not sure why, but somehow, I find it oddly reassuring that my tomato babies are awakening from their slumber, pushing through the dirt and now reaching for the light all on their own. Life finds a way! And we will find a way too!
In this time, I am getting back to basics, and part of that includes big gardening plans! I have decided that this year I am going to grow as much extra food as I can. Someone is going to need it with all the economic woes resulting from this virus.
I usually have some extra veggies, that I give to friends and neighbours, but in addition to that I want to be able to give some to the food bank, or leave some extras at our local rural post office for those who need them to supplement their pantry/fridge.
Is anyone else growing a little extra in their garden this year to help others out?
I am also happy to announce a giveaway that we will be doing here at the pottery. Some of you may know that we have a newsletter that we send out a few times a year to keep people updated on our latest creations and special offers.
Once we hit 300 subscribers, we will be drawing for two prizes that will include a copy of our book ‘A Potters Dream: Myths & Legends’ an art print and piece of jewelery for one of the lucky winners.
