Good morning everyone. It’s a soggy, kind of gloomy Sunday where we are right now but still a day to be thankful for. Spring is almost here and even though the weather and seasons appear to be somewhat mixed up (the days go from extremely hot to extremely cold very often), I am still looking forward to starting a variety of seeds from herbs to vegetables and fruits. Honestly, if I could plant meat, I would lol. Then, I would have everything covered right from the comfort of my home but of course, I can’t lol.
Have you ever noticed how even before the current pandemic, we would only have a limited variety of fruits, veggies, and herbs to choose from depending on what area that you lived in or traveled to? I am a true foodie and garden nerd so finding the freshest ingredients and having a wider range of choice is a must. When or should I say, if, you are ever able to be exposed to the world of all of the different types of onions, apples, kale, tomatoes, squash, herbs, and etc., you will never want to just keep consuming the same ole foods ever again. Trust me. I was this way once. When I learned that all I had to do was grow in knowledge of the land, the seeds, and the seasons, I went for it and I haven’t looked back since.
Whatever we can’t get at our stores at this time, due to the pandemic especially, we can grow ourselves from seed and thank God for that! It’s a worthy investment. Every year I have been blessed to be able to trade my talents and get a higher exchange of knowledge of the earth and everything that she has to offer. So, this year, I am going to put all of my love for her into every plant, fruit, vegetable, and herb alike, that I will plant.
Here are a somewhat small list of what I will be growing from seed this year:
These are literally just a few or should I say a taste of what I’ll be growing this year and I am so excited. Times are changing so drastically and I just choose to grow all that I can while I can because the earth is tired of all the bad things going on and innocent bloodshed. Those things affect her ability or desire to give us anything (and I don’t blame her). She has been good to us for a long time and we should appreciate her more. That is why while she is still giving us a chance to get what we can from her, I am going to take advantage of it and appreciate it.
I’ll of course be talking more about my love of gardening and all things natural more with time. Hopefully there are more out there who feel the same. Until next time, be kind, stay safe, and stay alive.
