...because of being raised in apartments and living almost my entire life in places without having my own plot of earth. It’s so important to me, and I get so jealous of people with homes that have actual yards. I instantly think of where my little fenced-in veggie garden would go, and the gravel path to my “spoked wheel” herb garden, and the flowers that would line the paths and attract butterflies, birds and bees.
It is so satisfying to make a meal from your own garden, to grow things that heal and nourish and enhance the beauty of your surroundings. I look forward to when I can, for the first time, plunge my shovel into dirt and hoe and tend and harvest my own gardens. 2 years ago
