The Continued Blessing
As the rain continues, so does the gardener’s break from those hard labor farm chores. Today’s walk leads the gardener to the seashore.
Walks fortify the gardener’s physical body. Walks also fortify the organic gardener’s spirit. Organic farmers and gardeners must be in touch with Mother Earth’s cycles. Weather varies day to day, season to season, and year to year. Time spent outside sensitizes the farmer to the daily needs of his or her plants.
Even if the farmer cannot work his or her land, a walk outside shows the farmer what the crops experience that day. A successful organic farmer maintains his or her spirit and body, as well as, his or her crops!
