Watching my garden grow…that’s what I’m thankful for today.
Sky and I started those seeds last weekend and already some are sprouting…soon it will be time to transplant into the garden, and watch them grow and grow until they are ready for harvesting.
I’m thankful that I get to grow some of our own food, in our small garden. That Sky’s excited about growing vegetables, and even picked what she wanted…broccoli and cauliflower.
There’s such a disconnect for most people between the food on their table and where it came from/how it got there. I feel a need to bridge that gap for myself and for Sky. I want to get back to how I grew up…on land, with a garden, raising some of our own meat…I used to know where the food came from, and every step it took to get it on the table.
I want Sky to have the satisfaction of growing, harvesting, and preparing the very vegetables she picked out. To have garden dirt under her fingernails, drinking sweet tea while caring for the garden in the hot sun, to enjoy the simple act of planting a seed and watching it grow. I want to share a little bit of how I grew up…with her…in our urban setting.
I’m thankful for finding a little bit of simple life in our garden.
