Watering over the weekendPosted: March 5, 2013
I visited the garden not feeling the greatest. I had a cold/fever but thought that crawling out of bed would do me and hopefully the garden some good. When I got to the garden it appeared that someone else had already watered that day because the soil was very moist so I took a look around the garden for things to do.
I stumbled upon these vines or plants that had taken root on the periphery of the raised beds. Some had little sticks helping them to “climb” the raised beds. I wonder if these are fruiting vine ?
After fumbling around the garden (remember I was on a good dose of DayQuil) I settled down to simply sitting in the garden. I thought of how nice it was to sit in a place where things are growing. At the end of the day the primary goal of a garden is to feed the stomach but I couldn’t help think about other beneficial attributes a urban garden could/does provide. When most of my days are spent rushing from one concern to another it was nice to rest in a place where the pace is much slower. Sitting there with soiled hands I felt somehow more connected to something.
I’m sure there is a ton of sentimental attachment to the current garden sign and in no way am I trying to boot it to the curb but I thought it might be cool to have a sign like the one below.
oh yea! does anyone know what this is? (pictured below)
