It’s about that time folks!! We are thinning out last season’s harvest and preparing the beds with seeds for a new season! Come join us for a fun-filled day of gardening in the sun, playing with the animals and maybe even some delicious food
AND GUESS WHAT!!!???
While you are working so hard clipping Kale and swiss chard, picking snap peas and pulling carrotts…
Have I mentioned latey that my kids LOVE harvesting our vegetables? It is so exciting to see them eagerly pick(sometimes a little too much) the vegetables ready for harvesting. Lately we have been enjoying the first harvest of our first growing season with the new garden beds (thanks to the hard work and amazing knowledge of Simple Growth Gardens). I am SO excited to see what the future holds for our beautiful garden!
Well today we let Geezer out and discussed letting him move in with Maxine. He loves the dirt and enjoys hanging out with farm animals like he is one of the gang…he is a pig after all. So today he is a happy pig wandering around the farm munching on the happy weeds coming up after the rain and itching his belly on tree stumps…but he IS locked out of the garden. NO Sir I will not allow you to eat the whole vegetable garden like I know you want to…
I dont know what it’s like to have to be living in your home while it is getting remodeled, but after this experience I am pretty certain I will not like it.
For the last week or so our garden has been torn apart and destroyed. Blood, sweat and tears have gone into that garden, as measly as it was… I was proud of it. Even when you know the destruction is temporary and the bigger plan (if successful) will be amazing, beautiful and fulfil the legacy I am trying to live out… I still cried when we couldn’t save the big Loquat tree. I cried when the bluejays and gold finches fluttered frantically around wondering where their favorite boxwood bushes were going. I cried when I had no where to transplant my 2 month old baby corn plants when we had to pull up the garden box… and they were fed to the animals. I cried when they were done working that first day and everything was empty… completely empty and I suddenly lost my vision that had been so vibrant and inspiring. What had I done?
