It’s becoming increasingly important to learn how to rely on our local resources like our food gardens and to continue to hone our skill. It is said that you reap what you sow. If we are giving the commitment and time to growing our own food, we may as well make sure we get an abundant harvest and reap some food that not only will nourish our bodies but also our souls. Paying lots of attention to the time in between the sowing and reaping is where the real good stuff is – it’s not only the destination, but the journey that counts, and at this time we are on the journey of continued care of our wonderful gardens. It is an investment of time that will be worthwhile.
