Tilling the Soil

Gardening is such an healthy earthy past time
to dig in the soil reminds us of our connection
to nature, our planet and our inner self

We are often swept up in busyness
buying or just too distracted by life
toiling in the earth brings us back to basics

Best is to watch what we have grown
to see the shoots arise from seeds we’ve sown
then to enjoy the fruits flowers or veg

What do you plant in your garden?
What seeds do you sow each day?
What can you expect to harvest from all that you think do and say?

  2. I wish there was more time for gardening. I’m currently growing summer squash, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, baby bell peppers, basil, rosemary, potatoes, a coffee tree and an olive tree. Then there’s the flower garden.

  3. Everyday I learn something from someone.
    Everyday I sow a seed of knowledge.
    In various fields of my life.
    I am result of what my gardner has done to me πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Besides philosophy,
    I do not have garden, but have a few plants in my balcony and I take care utmost care of them.
    The big result is my lavener pots are still alive and some new leaves are coming on them inspite of deadly weather this summer.

  4. Love this poem, Kate! πŸ™‚

    And I love to garden! I have year round plants, trees, flowers, etc. And then I usually have a summer garden…in the past few years I’ve only grown tomatoes, squashes, and peppers. But, in the past I grew carrots, onions, radishes, corn, pumpkins (I grew the pumpkins by accident!), ETC. πŸ™‚

    Every day I try to plant seeds of encouragement, kindess, understanding, love, grace, joy (etc) in the hearts of those people I encounter. πŸ™‚

    Oh, to be like the soil…rich, warm, nuturing, protecting, and life-giving! πŸ™‚
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚

  5. calmkate, in answer to your question above, I am well. Like many others it seems to be a very busy time for giving family matters priority. I’m neglecting blogging matters. Trying to get everybody read at least twice a week, but not getting much more done. Keeping g-grands, working on legacy kinds of stuff, reunions, mailing lists, etc. I offered to update the mailing list for family – about 150 names with much updating necessary. I’m also beginning a new unit of study for my Sunday class on the Minor Prophets. I’ve never taught that before, so it is taking a lot of background study. All pleasant, thankfully. Thanks for caring. See you later.
