As I look out at the garden with its leaf litter and sad looking soil, I’m excited for the greens that will shoot up again soon. It’s time to plan the garden, start some seeds, think about improving the soil. While the work of the first few months of the gardening year isn’t bountiful, the muck that gets stuck to your boots is a sign of the good things to come.
It’s not the blooms or the harvest that I’m excited for. It’s not about what the garden produces for me, it about how I feel when I get to work in the garden. Sometimes just a little time to dig in a day is enough to lift the clouds, extend the sunlight, or warm up the air. It makes me forget my aches for a short while and fills me with energy.
