A little peek into our vegetable garden, aka: my happy place. So far everything I planted is thriving and it’s just so gratifying. We have lettuce, broccoli, green beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers, carrots, basil, parsley and cilantro. Lots of our favorite things to eat. Growing food, or just about anything for that matter, has been such a love of mine. And lately I’ve felt a calling to be closer to the earth and plant all the things. I have a vision… and dream that one day hopefully soon we will have a little farm on our property. It will be filled with tons of vegetables and fruits, along with flowers. I imagine it being a beautiful and magical place, as our small garden is now, and becomes a local spot for organic produce around our town. I don’t know all the legal hoops to get to that point but it’s something I would like to work toward. I truly enjoy doing this so much and Gray Star Farms doesn’t seem so silly to me.
Anyway, just wanted to share a special place I love with you all. I come out here every morning and throughout the day to water and observe and then at night one last time before our day is done. It’s a big part of my daily routine. I am so grateful to have the space to bring this garden to life and proud of what we created. Nature will always have a place in my heart.
