We are easing back into developing our garden and farm again. The exhaustion and business of life led us away. I have allowed myself to maintain a small garden. I say allowed because I want more. It isn’t what I imagine as being great, but sometimes you have to get real with yourself about what you can pull off.
This is our small garden.
Last year we had no garden and I see this as a huge improvement. Strawberries, onions, cucumber, zucchini, sunflowers, pinto beans, watermelon, cantaloupe, peppers, potatoes are all coming up and doing well.
I can’t ask for more than that. Every year no matter how much I know it will happen, I always feel surprised and in awe by what can come from such a tiny seed.
A tiny garden baring the fruits it ought to is a wonderful thing.
