Love is patient and kind, yes, but love also goes with you to Lowe's, Home Depot and Fred Meyer on Valentines Day in search of garden stakes, pea netting, bone meal, and organic potting soil. Love then helps build the 8 foot long bed of sugar snap peas, and pots up the strawberries in a hanging basket. And all the while discussing living in a hetero normative society, the aspect of race when it comes to gardening and farming, the beauty of being strong and able to do the work that we do in our garden. But most of the time me complaining that Lowe's has a row full of garden statuary and crap but not basics like pea netting or a good hand saw. Seriously.
This is our 15th Valentines Day together and I can honestly say it gets better every year. Love is love is love is love. Happy Valentines Day blog readers!
