It is not my imagination that the month of May, especially in Ballard, explodes with too many activities. The grand finale combination of flowering bushes and Syttende Mai is stressful enough in Ballard; the addition of boomtown construction equals relentless.
My car resembles a book mobile as I collect for the Literacy Council of Seattle book sale on June 6th. It’s also a traveling road show as I tote banners, tri-folds (and soon a wheelbarrow for the parade) as Seattle Green Spaces Coalition member. By the front door is a stack of egg cartons to deliver along with ten pounds of organic butter to a neighbor. The heirloom tomatoes that I bought at last week’s Abundant Greens sale still need to be planted.
