Hi Chris, It was one of those tough weeks that takes from you emotionally as well as physically. My Hubby’s step-dad passed away on friday morning and this took its toll on the whole family. The way to regain my senses and strength is taking the chickens in tow and start gardening. I spent the whole day Saturday cleaning up the veggie patch, raked, dug, pruned, added compost and potted all my new plants until the sun was gone. It was a good way for me to express my respect to all things old and new and to always look to the earth for new life – in growth and in spirit. I was so encouraged to see my energy-giving veggies looking strong and healthy. The onions – my little soldiers – keeps all the bugs in check. Oh yes, my friend, life continues and we should remember to enjoy, respect, treasure and love!
