And So It Begins...

After months of anticipation, longing, care, devotion, and attention, my garden fruits and vegetables are finally beginning to produce consistantly! I felt as though this day would never come but there is a season for everything - I must be faithful :) - and that season has finally arrived...and I couldn't be more delighted!

Every day in my garden - whether it be in the dead of winter or in the zenith of summer - is spent finding  joy in everything there is to do.  I seldom complain about the work because I know I am continually striving to attain the 'greater good' and health of (at least my version of) my oasis.

I have been enjoying my Alaska snap peas, Sugar snap peas, spinach, lettuce, swiss chard, kale, beets, trunips and their greens, radishes, strawberries, and very excitedly...I found my first pale red raspberry of the year!! It won't be long now!

As my patience seems to be paying off, I also know I am so thankful for what I am receiveing. There is so much joy in being able to grow the foods you love, or just want to try, and be able to go out and pick it at the height of freshness and taste food the way is was created!

I hope you can all take a moment and try something for yourself...whether it be just a patio with fresh herbs and potted vegetables, or a small plot with your favorites...make it yours and enjoy every piece of it!! You'll be amazed at what you can do and how you will feel!
