I have had a great harvest so far. I have had quite a few strawberries, zucchini, lemon balm, basil, mint and dill. I did plant all of those. As a result, I am experimenting with some recipes and drinking more tea than usual. If ANYONE needs lemon balm, please tell me. I have one plant and I am drying lemon balm at least once per week and the amount I get just keeps growing.
I love that I am able to do all of this. I've been wanting to grow things from a garden for so long so it is quite satisfying. I am already thinking about next year and how I can make the garden my own.
Lastly, I am still looking for a job. I am keeping my hopes high. People do get hired just a couple of weeks before school starts. I have had some pretty good interviews and I still didn't get the positions so I am pretty sure the economy is hurting me more than myself. Just keep swimming, just keep swimming. =)
Here are a couple of tips for interviewing...research the job beforehand and make it apparent during the interview that you researched (i.e. mention the motto/mission statement of the company or school), also, bring questions to the interview. So for my interviews, I often ask questions about what I feel is important to have in a job such as collaboration and mentor programs for first-year teachers. I have been at places that are terrible at collaboration and I have seen the positive effects of when collaboration is implemented well so I obviously want a school that collaborates well. Well, salut, for now. Live long and prosper. :)
