Creating a Vegetable Garden
I’ve wanted a vegetable garden for some time, and this Spring my son Patrick created one for me in the area right where his old soccer net stood for years.
With any creation, one often times needs to excavate many rocks and boulders. Digging deep requires muscle, perseverance and the courage to carry on when the going gets hard.
Creation begins first with inspiration and intention. Good, healthy soil to help nurture and grow the soft and tender seeds of awakening.
Add the incubating warmth of the sun, the always present June rains…..and patience….and one day shades of green paint lines in the garden canvas.
Dainty parties gather in groups…..
Now if only I could remember what I planted where!….perhaps I should have paid more attention as a child weeding among the rows of my mother’s garden…
