Another snow yesterday.
But here on our little 'farm', January is the beginning of warm and green too.
Why is this so exciting to me? A small spoonful of soil and a tiny seed.
That will grow into something beautiful and healthful for our table and our bodies.
This year, a much bigger garden. It's likely I'm over-achieving.
But I will be at home there, between the rows, letting my thoughts wander and meander as I tend the vegetables.
Why do I grow a vegetable garden? The food. Of course the food. Straight from the earth to my family's table. There is nothing so nourishing as that.
But also for the way my mind gets to run off and play while I'm out there digging in the dirt. It's good for mind and soul and body. Why would I not do this?
Do you garden?
