As I enjoyed going outside to tend and water the gardens and weed, I always feel closer to nature as an overwhelming peace comes over me and as I make sure I take a moment to meditate and absorb in the beauty of the morning songbirds different chirps, the way the sun reflects upon the grass with the morning dew so illuminated, and the sky that morning how sharp and picture perfect it is that day and placement of the sun at that very moment and the scent of my gardenia fully in bloom. I feel full with gratitude and thankfulness for this day.
I loved these WWI and WWII Department of Agriculture Posters making a comeback http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/food/2010/05/american-food-posters-from-world-war-i-and-ii/ and thought how they are so prevalent today and as it reminds me of my childhood our Parents grew gardens of some sort it was a war-time and a way of life back then and we all seemed to eat real food. Their were not any processed foods at that time, no additives to food and you never heard of GMO’s. http://www.nongmoproject.org/learn-more/
Maybe it was just you didn’t hear of the different types of health problems with children not so many allergies, and other issues that seem so much happening with children now.
It seemed as if everyone grew some kind of vegetable or had a fruit tree back then. Growing our own veggies was a good thing and now it is making a comeback. We nourish our bodies with our food and food is our medicine if you have the right types.
Take time to enjoy your garden it is a process and doesn’t occur overnight but it produces patience and thought.
“When you plant seeds in the garden, you don’t dig them up every day to see if they have sprouted yet. You simply water them and clear away the weeds; you know that the seeds will grow in time. Similarly, just do your daily practice and cultivate a kind heart. Abandon impatience and instead be content creating the causes for goodness; the results will come when they’re ready.”
