The mantra running through my head.

I rediscovered this poem today, via a post over at SouleMama.  I figured I would share it here and share some pictures of the little plot of earth I have.

Sowing the seed,
my hand is one with the earth.
Wanting the seed to grow,
my mind is one with the light.
Hoeing the crop,
my hands are one with the rain,
Having cared for the plants,
my mind is one with the air.
Hungry and trusting,
my mind is one with the earth.
Eating the fruit,
my body is one with the earth.

-Wendell Berry

Tatters. Growin' fast.


Cauliflower. If the darn bunny doesn't get it.


Rainbow Chard and Marigolds.

Rainbow Chard and a bumper crop of hail-damaged-Chevy-Cobalts.


The fig twig. Still lookin' twiggy.

Lettuce around the Fig Twig.


Peas. Specifically amazing Asian sugar peas.

Blueberries, hiding behind a cabbage that is going to seed.
More cabbage, also going to seed. This is going to get stir-fried up soon.
More strawberries. I got excited about strawberries this year.
