Winter Barley

November 26, 2008

I’m horribly behind on my posting, sorry about that… it seems that the first months of fall/winter and I really do not get along. I have been sick since the beginning of October which really puts deep thoughts on the back burner. So, while we wait for my brain cells to recouperate… I have two fun photos for you!

On Samhain I was able to get my Winter Barley planted – just in time too! We had a torrential down pour for the next for days!! It was wonderful and great for the barley, but it kept all of us inside for the most part!

heres the barely about a week (maybe less – I’ve lost track) after it was planted.


and a week or so later –


The wire fence around the pot is to keep the cats and local night critters out.

The Barley has gotten even taller since and has started to fall over! I have no idea if I am doing any of this right, but I figure nature knows what to do, so the best thing I can do is stay out of the way! So we shall see if I actually manage to make space for really live, honest to goddess Barley to grow in my side yard!

Holiday Blessings,

  1. I’m glad you’re back. I’m sorry you haven’t been feeling well. Your barley looks beautiful! Hope you’re feeling that vibrant, too. “Honest to goddess Barley,” love that. It’s a chilly winter coming on here. Hope you are staying warm and feeling well.

  2. Thanks. It’s been the fall of illness… I came down with Tonsillitis after the strep… wheee. I *think* and hope that I am done with being sick for the season – I had better be, or the doctor’s are threatening to take out my tonsils. mmm… so. much. fun! 🙂

    But. the weather here is getting cold and Yule-ish. my coven celebrates this weekend – early was the only way we could get everyone together at the same time, so we’re going for it! and the health is improving. I’ll take it!

    Yule Blessings to you and your family.

  3. Aloha Kate, Thinking of you at Winter Solstice. Hope you are warm and safe and feeling well. Many Blessings to you, family and coven. Be well! Aloha pumehana, Susie
