The girl who returns from the garden is never the same girl who entered the garden – my stress is always swapped for tranquility.
If I have even a spare 20 minutes, it isn’t unusual to find me in the garden.
Here is what I got up to yesterday with a spare 20 minutes and any some space in our garden. I love to pop into the soil single stakes to plant purple peas and sugar snap peas (or beans during summer). Sometimes joining the stakes at the top to form a tepee but often just leaving the stake to stand alone (like a sad country western song).
My simple gardening philosophy is, if I continually and regularly plant seeds, then I will always have food to harvest from the garden.
Even just 20 minutes in the garden benefits my mind and body – growing good food and eating good food.
