Seeds of hope

Happiness is working in my bach garden. After harvesting my butternut, tomatoes and capsicums in the weekend, I started clearing weeds and dead plants, then preparing the soil for new planting. At the end of the day I'd planted two rows of carrots. The moon was waning, which is a good time to plant root veges, and the soil is still warm enough for them to do some growing before winter.
It always feels hopeful to begin a new cycle, even if it gets sneaked in between seasons.

Happiness is working in the garden; I find working with the soil and planting for the future gives such positive feelings.

So hopeful and refreshing to clear away the dead plant matter and sow the seeds for the future. I always know I can come home to nature here, Juliet. Thank you.
