There is always something to do in the garden. On any given day, there’s plenty to keep me busy. Weeding, watering, deadheading, and harvesting is in a gardener’s job description. And oh, let’s not forget the job of pest patrol – especially if you are an organic gardener, which can mean picking off bugs, slugs and worms by hand.
But there is also a slowness about gardening. And that’s the space I try to settle into every day, if only for ten minutes, despite the many tasks that beg for my attention.
