Peace and Serenity

Gardening is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty, and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.

Excellent quote... and so true!

While one misses out on getting dirty, a similar feeling occurs when visiting a farmers market. Just the sight of all those vegetables, fresh from the soil, is most enlightening.

You have such a nice perspective. It is amazing to me that more people aren't growing their own food right now. We do (I'm going to take the plunge and make my first cold frames this year -- wish me luck!) and we love it. The best part, for me, is getting my children involved in the garden. They just love to see things grow and to taste the produce they've helped produce.

Thanks for the great blog. I'll be coming back for updates! Keep up the good work -- even in the off season!

Best, MM
