Home gardens

A week or so ago I was delighted to find, on friend M’s Facebook site, photographs of some of her garden and its produce. This is a simple thing but monumental at the same time. I can feel her pleasure, a pleasure that all food growers have when the veggies pop up and grow. When they feed you.

She noted indian summer sort of day and a worthwhile gardening effort: the little pink violet reappears, an early early little crop of King Edwards for tea and lo and behold blessed be the self-sown broad beans which have survived drought flood fire and 30cm of mulch. They shall definitely inherit the earth.’

And not so long ago M recorded‘… while foraging for greens tonight 10,000 saw I at a glance; self-seeded perpetual green silver beets.

It may be autumn going on winter when not much is expected to flourish, but the goodness of the earth continues to give.
