While people in the world are creating anxiety for more people everywhere that there will be more war, I am still planning for my future garden as if spring will still come and plants will grow and life will go on. If only everyone could just plan a spring garden instead of conflict and conflagration.
With the help of my son John, I took a very weedy, grassy patch at the end of my west garden, where the sprinklers don’t reach, and turned it into a so-called Back to Eden Garden, that shouldn’t need much watering come summertime. That’s because instead of removing the leaf cover on top, I will only clear breathing spaces for the plants that I put there this summer. The leaf mulch will remain to keep the soil underneath moist.
So, if all goes according to plan, there will be peace this summer, and some healthy tomatoes growing in that spot in my garden.
