Gardening Musts

I think most of you are very much aware of my fondness for Gardening. 

I must admit is has been a huge learning curve for me this year with many successes and a few complete failures. But I did manage to not buy one stinkin’ vegetable the entire summer  and was fortunate to taste what fresh organically grown stuff really taste like as compared to the Grocery Store’s Steroidal Stuff.

I am now in the process of clearing out the residue of Spring and Summer. The plants have done their job and provided for me for 6 months now. Now begins the toiling task of reenergizing the soil that has produced so much. My next posting will discuss The Sabbath, The resting period for the garden. But before that I wanted to share some wisdom I received from a 90 year old Aunt-in-law who has spent her life in gardens and soil. I hope you find it as meaningful as I did.

Where do these “Older” folks get this great stuff. We will be forever indebted to their immense wisdom.

Thank you Aunt Ruby!
