What the garden has taught me

morning zucchini flowerGardens are incredibly satisfying places to hang out. They also instill an incredible amount of wonder and a feeling of awe as well as providing something juicy for your next meal. If you make enough time to go slowly in the morning, you’ll see & hear all the pollinators playing.

Brush past the herbs, pinch off some basil tips and inhale.

The edible garden may offer solace and supper, but don’t be lured into a false sense of security – it comes at a cost.

Hot hot days require a little extra attention, making sure all your little darlings stay hydrated. Tomatoes are best fresh & homegrown, the fruit fly in our coastal environment greatly appreciate our efforts.

Zucchinis are so exited to get up & grow – you can just about watch them mature before your eyes.

Take a break during peak growing time and be prepared to wade through weeds and tomato bushels on return. One thing the edible patch isn’t is static. There’s always life, always a pulse, many lessons to learn and observations daily.

With the Davidson’s plum dropping and figs bursting at the seam, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
