After a few days of the Santa Ana winds this week, I spent most of my morning doing a little yard clean-up. I was able to fill an entire outdoor trash can with pine needles, and still have another pile that could probably fill another! Sadly, it’s more like a summer day than a fall one, so I am now sweaty and dirty and ready to hop in the shower.
First, though, I just had to document this little surprise I found in our garden. I had completely forgotten that I had planted radishes this year, because they never came up. I planted the little seeds way back in April! When I noticed these leaves sprouting, I was curious… I waited a week or 2, then gave a little tug and out popped my radish! I am not much of a fan of radishes, but the miracle of watching a seed transform into what it’s created to be never ceases to amaze me.
