To live, we must daily break the body and shed the blood of creation. When we do it knowingly, lovingly, skillfully, reverently, it is a sacrament. When we do it ignorantly, greedily, destructively, it is a desecration. – Wendell Berry, The Gift of Good Land
This week we were blessed with two, that’s right, two storms which brought us some much needed rain. What a blessing such rain is so late in the season!
I just LOVE this time of year, don’t you? What a joy it is to look about the garden, witness seedlings pushing through the soil and anticipating the first fruits and vegetables of the summer season.
I can’t say this enough and I quite possibly sound like a broken record, but we wouldn’t have the success we have with sowing without out soil blocker – every gardener, farmer should have one. We’ve had ours for over 15 years and it’s a gardener’s best friend.
What sorts of goodies are coming from your garden these days?
