Observations in the Garden

1. The actual act of planting – placing
a desiredchosen seed
or seedling in the ground
requires very little energy other than a bit of intention and initiative,
as compared to the great effort
needed to prepare the soil

2. Which requires the backbreaking
task of piercing the soil with something sharp,
removing stones and
breaking stubborn clods that have been packed down over time.

3. Once planted, of course
consistent energy must thereafter be
spent
watering and
keeping weeds at bay –
but if tended to regularly, this is
joyful work!

4. It’s only when neglected and overrun
with weeds
that the garden requires heavy
handed intervention, by use of the
gardener’s tools, lest the plot become
utterly unfruitful.
