The August / September Garden
Ok, so I have been very bad this year with the garden posts - To be honest this is because I didn't do as much as I had hoped to do in the garden. What amazes me about growing your own food though, is that you really don't have to do much to feed yourself and keep a family in a few fresh garden vegetables.
Even when doing the bare minimum in the garden over the past couple of months, we still had our own:
- 3 varieties of beetroot
- A variety of Herbs
- Red Cabbage
- Chili's (hopefully)!
The apples, pears and soft fruits this year are incredible, there are so many of them, on our own trees as well as growing wild around us in brambles and hedgerows. There also seems to be an abundance of sloe's (hopefully this will make up for last year), damsons, blackberries, hips, nuts and mushrooms.
Wild Free Food!
All the time I am discovering the many wild and wonderful ways nature gives... and just keeps giving.
This, I realise is one of the most precious gifts that we have, It's there for free, for all - All we have to do is respect it and nurture it.
It's Simple - The simple life, we don't need to complicate our lives with over consumerism and waste - Plant a few seeds, grow some of your own food, buy clothes in second hand shops, make them yourself, make do with what you have.
Life is simple, nature is simple - Striving to live in harmony with it, is the part we so often make complicated.
My September garden/life Intention = Harmony.
