June Gardening Update

In June the garden was filling out and growing fast with plenty of rain and warm weather. The peas really took over and I discovered a whole new world inside those tiny green pods. I had never really known what a pea tasted like before June 2009, but I made up for it with kilo after kilo smothered in butter and a bit of garlic… The Zucchini plants began to flower; There were some tiny green tomatoes forming, and peas, cabbage, beets, and carrots were not long from harvest time.

Week after week I was constantly amazed by what the garden produced- with very little ‘help’ from me. If we give it a chance, nature provides for us all that we need. I really began to realize what a gift the garden and the land that nourished it truly was. It was already providing me with more food than I could keep up with eating… And what food I couldn’t eat found the stomachs of friends, neighbors, and many others who happened along now and again. It was an extraordinary feeling knowing that a little effort was all it took to be able to eat healthy and well– And best of all: to be able to pass that gift along to many others.
