Bonding With Your Home & Garden

There’s nothing like going out into the garden and picking fresh vegetables and grabbing a few handfuls of fresh strawberries. It helps me bond with my surroundings. I feel uncomfortable when I am too busy to keep my garden to my standards (which aren’t THAT high, I’m a funky gardener). Uncomfortable because a garden sustains me physically and spiritually, it literally feeds me in those two ways. Whether it is one solo tomato plant or an acre of corn, those of us who put a seed into the ground and nurture it, feel a special bond with our surroundings, a grounding so to speak. No pun intended.
