“Gardening is an active participation in the deepest mysteries of the universe.” ~ Thomas Berry
While I’m busy with other things needing priority, thought I’ll show you around my little balcony garden. So come on.. enter my little green space..
Gardening – My way to connect with nature, an everyday proof of life
“Where you have a plot of land, however small, plant a garden. Staying close to the soil is good for the soul.” ~ Spencer W. Kimball
A friend gave this tomato plant when she moved to another state in winter
My little girl planted these. She makes sure to water them everyday and checks on them to see if she can find peas yet.
I read somewhere, it seems, if we let mint, it would take over the garden. I’d say, if you want to be sure about your green thumb, try planting mint.
I’d buy organic herbs for a steep price just to use once or twice and before I knew the whole thing rotted sitting in the refrigerator. Growing my own “lesser used” herbs such as rosemary, parsley and thyme lets me use a sprig as two as needed.
“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul” ~ Alfred Austin
After an episode of mealy bugs, a home remedy solution of baking soda, salt and soap didn’t seem to help my dying curry leaf plant. I had lost all hopes when she started showing new signs of life.
Fingers crossed, she’ll make it..
If you have special tips for any of these or any plant for that matter, I’d love to hear from you..
