Full Description

Rather than working on seven projects for the week, I thought I would share 7 ways making, cultivating, and creating are part of my weekly rhythm. In keeping with today’s quote by Andy Crouch, I thought I would start with cultivating. For most of my life I’ve considered myself to be the black thumb in a family of gardeners. Plants were just not something I wanted to put time & energy into. When we did have a vegetable garden in our early years, my part was dealing with the harvest, not the garden itself. Eight years ago I started working my way through many food issues which resulted in my having a very limited diet. During that process I thought it would be a good idea to learn how to grow some of the things I can eat. Bob built me a couple of raised beds and I began growing greens & carrots. It is fascinating how a tiny little seed can grow into something I can eat. Success in the vegetable garden spurred me to try some container gardening. While I still don’t get excited about most plants, I find succulents fun to grow. Sometimes you just have to find your niche. Kale anyone?
