The subject for my MJP Gratitude Challenge for today is : Vegetable Gardens.
I don’t remember seeing a vegetable garden that I didn’t like. What is it about them that seems so comfortable? Is it the spring ritual that we perform year after year? Buying seeds, prepping the beds, planning where to plant what…….
I think they are appealing because it’s they’re so basic. No matter how plain or how fancy a vegetable garden is, it is still just a human, planting seeds in the earth, in hopes of gathering food.
I consider vegetable gardens the Great Equalizers. Even the richest person we know is allowed giddiness over a homegrown, vine ripened tomato.
These are such personal gardens. You are able to catch a glimpse of the gardener that you won’t see in the other areas of the landscape. What is your favorite part of a veggie garden?
