A Year on Clear Lake-Nov 12, 2012

How does my garden grow? With a lakeside view, of course.

As a fledgling farmer I have just begun to scratch the surface of my relationship with the earth. So far, it seems my role is minuscule – prepare the ground, plant the seed, tend its needs – mainly water. Weed a bit, which, obviously, I don’t do enough of.

It’s exciting to witness the energy exchange – from the sun to the earth and through the plants. It may sound silly, but I can sense the joy of the growing plants – just being in this world – bursting with life.

I think there is much to be learned about the cycle of life right here in this little plot, and I look forward to the lessons that lie ahead.
