Having a kitchen garden had always been a dream of mine.
Connected to our mother Earth, being in tune with her heartbeat provides a security not found in daily commutes and eight-plus hour work days. Beginning in May and continuing though to the first autumn frost I know I will be provided for.
I plant seeds and she waters and fertilizes new growth.
We co-create a garden that provides not only for the human family but also for a myriad of creatures who share our space. Birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects and arachnids compete for a space to create a home or food for themselves and their young. I too compete in the reaping.
Tomatoes, cabbages, peppers, sometimes I am not the first to harvest from the garden!
I do not mind sharing, they give back by strengthening the web of life through our inter-connectedness.
