What You Get From A Garden
Antidotes for too much thought.
A place to do some thinking.
A place to slash and burn and feel good about it.
A dozen shades of green.
More than you put in.
Permission to be muddy.
A model of God’s efficiency
A chance to see the whole wheel turn.
A feast of color.
Encounters with interesting creatures.
A place to “practice resurrection.”
Zucchini for the whole neighborhood.
A place to practice military strategy on small predators.
A chance to start over.
