garden 2015, ed 12.

It's been over a month since my last gardening post. As per usual, as the fall is winding down, I tend to neglect my garden more and more. I continued to harvest broccoli up until that first big snowfall, but after that my #garden15 was shut down.

I didn't get my garden tilled before the snow, but that's ok. We will just till it up in the spring before we plant.

Reflecting back on the year I had with my garden, I realized it's taught me a lot: garden15

  • The more attention and tending you give a garden, the more it will give back to you. But even if you neglect it, it will still give back to you. All you have to do is plant it.
  • Gardens are as much work as you want them to be. You can plant a few tomato plants and herbs in pots, or you can go all out, whatever works for you.
  • Gardens are a great form of meditation.
  • Gardens are great exercise.
  • Gardens bring people together, whether it's planting, weeding, harvesting, preserving, or eating the produce.

Take life (or your garden) as it is. Life isn't perfect. And gardens aren't either (especially mine!)

I can't wait for my #garden16. Planning begins now!
