Gardening with Our Babe and All

Time in the garden is so wonderfully healing and grounding for my children and me.  Last summer I made very little time for digging my hands into our little plot.  A year ago our family had a baby and this summer we began our journey through cancer.  Despite the times I've weeded and planted with a touchy feely baby on my back, our garden time has been slim.  Our garden is forgiving and patient.  Even in these autumn months, she continues to share foods we love: apples, beets, kale, cabbage, tomatoes.  We are thankful for the bounty to consume and share.  We are thankful for the gifts of Mother Earth and know she is working and resting as she eagerly awaits our intentional touch and connection.
