Gardening is therapy for my heart and soul. First hard work is done to prepare the space, sweat, blisters, bug bites persist yet glorious hard work overcomes all bringing a great sense of joy and inner peace. As the weeds come out of the ground they also come out of my soul.
Then come the rows, carefully prepared with love hoping the hard work has paid off. Seeds are picked out, planted, covered and blessed.
Then the 3 w's:
I wonder will the seeds take...will they grow. When I don't see anything I doubt for a moment and am overjoyed to find growth on a new day.
Gardening is like anything else, if you don't succeed the first time try again! I've already re-seeded a few areas and thankfully I did because now new growth is coming up. I have a few more to tend to. ;)
We planned our rows out this time.
Can you tell I am married to an engineer? He helped organize us and I learned quickly documenting it on an excel spreadsheet. Fun!
Fingers crossed what we planned actually comes to fruition!
I am hoping the garden produces so much we have plenty to share!!!
Here are some of the beauties coming up!
Do you have a garden? We hope to have a big piece of property someday, an earth ship home and a permanent garden spot but for now we are so happy to have the go-ahead to plant where we are. We've done container gardening in San Diego on our patio and it was fun to see how much we could grow. Whether big or small in a kitchen window seal or a patio growing plants brings much joy!
With love and dirt under my thumb,
“It was such a pleasure to sink one's hands into the warm earth, to feel at one's fingertips the possibilities of the new season.”
