Guavas and all

I think the garden is all about growth and life and new beginnings and nourishment for the body and soul. There should always be time to take a walk in the garden. To look at it through the eyes of a fellow garden plant. To see how all plants work together to give each other shade or nutrients or help ward off pesky pests or bring the welcomed insects. I look at my new lemons on my tree and I think of the pleasure and pain to see these ripened beauties. I look at the lemons on the grocery store shelf and I can see and feel the energy that went into making one simple lemon. I delight in my new guavas – even though I was not a great fan of them, I have learnt to enjoy them fresh off the tree.  So I appreciate all my trees and plants that bring me joy and sweet treats!!

Here are some new photos of my garden walk about!

Enjoy! x

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Thank you for your post and I see that the gardening bug has hit you 🙂 . Enjoy the posts and come back again. 🙂

I am like you. I see and appreciate all the effort it took nature and the growers to produce the fruit and vegetables we eat. Especially have grown them myself, you learn first hand. I bugs me when I seem them so carelessly handled in them store.

My gosh, my tomato plants are slightly bigger than yours. I have not seen anyone’s smaller. I always feel so left behind bloggers all around the world. Our growing season is short and we have to pack so much in for the short amount of time.

Hi Donna, I have a terrible tendency to plant my seeds late. I also prefer to plant from seeds and it really is all about the timing. But it’s usually when I’m busy with work stuff. It is also very hot still in april here, so I have to wait for cooler weather. 🙂

Its nice hey? At Starke Ayres, where I always shop! 🙂 They only had two left, but I hope they get more!
