Spring hasn’t quite sprung but it’s definitely on the way. If you’re planning a garden, there’s no time to waste according to this spring planting schedule.
I’m going to try a no-till garden this year, mainly because our planter box was built with toxic redwood and nothing grew last year. So I have to disassemble it and I don’t have time to rebuild. But it also turns out that it’s fast becoming a vogue gardening style for soil health. Hopefully, I don’t find out what our local garden pests are.
And to coincide with your planting mojo I absolutely fell in love with this charming The Biggest Little Farm documentary.
Once we wash the dirt off and think about heading out to dinner at those recently reopened restaurants here’s what people are wearing this season.
If you’re not quite ready to get out there yet, there are still some cool online events happening. People are loving Rick Steve’s virtual travel events series and I’m signed up for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Ireland event.
And if you’ve never attended a film festival, the virtual Sonoma Film Festival is coming up and might be the perfect chance to watch this year’s Indie short or full film submissions. Either watch by yourself or it could be a really fun thing to do as a family.
I’ve only attended San Jose’s Cinequest Film Festival once but some of the shorts and the industry interviews were really creative and entertaining. Several of the segments I attended were showings of six short films. Usually, three were pretty bad but the other three were incredibly creative. It’s a great way to gain a real appreciation for all that goes into an award-winning film.
If you are attending any cool events, please share.
