I think I’ll have butternut squash, zucchini and summer squash earlier this year, a few weeks ahead of my usual harvest. Here it is in mid April and I have repotted these beauties. They’re vivacious and healthy with rich green leaves. I’ve made sure to water them everyday, set them in sunlight and put the grow lights on them a few hours a day. All I need to do is keep them thriving until our greenhouse is up next month and then around Memorial Day we will plant them in our garden.
Early in the morning I enthusiastically rise to check on their growth. It gives me a deep peaceful tranquility to have them. The same goes for my garden outside in the summer. There’s a profound purpose growing living things…beautiful plants that will reap fresh vegetables for our consumption. I can’t imagine a more rewarding hobby fit for me, as feeding my family makes me content and proud.
This morning I thank God for my ability to learn more about inside gardening and possibly share some of my plants with others. I wish you all have a hobby that speaks such calm whispers to you, that spark a live fire within you and touch your soul. I have found this with gardening and writing.
Have a wonderful day and indulge in an activity that brings positive light to your life.
All My Best,
Heart and Soul
