What better way to celebrate our beautiful Earth than by getting out and working it? Yesterday and today we tilled up a patch of dirt that is going to be our garden. It’s very exciting!
There is going to be a lot of food coming out of this dark brown rectangle soon. Check out that soil! We are really happy with the quality, especially considering it has never been planted in before. And after we work some compost into it, it will be even better.
…Charlie much enjoyed all the roots we were digging up and tossing aside.
The smell of dirt, the wiggle of worms, the knock-knock-knock of woodpeckers in the trees, the scritchy-scratch of the chickens as they investigate the newly turned soil for bugs…these are the sights and sounds that we’re enjoying on Earth Day 2o11. I am so grateful to Mother Earth for providing us with everything we need to live happy, healthy, fulfilled lives.
