A tribute to another Mother on this special day – Mother Nature.

I planted my small garden just a few weeks back after harvesting my compost. Since that time, I have done almost nothing – THAT is the secret to good gardening. I weeded it only once, and have never even so much as watered it. The trick is to plant things that fit the environment well and make good compost.


It is hard to tell the size from this quick camera photo, but the green beans are almost 5 feet tall, the tomotoes are about four, and the peppers and honeydew melon are also coming along beautifully.

Sure, you have to wait for Mother Nature to do her “thang,” but the rewards are worth it. Fresh food with sooo much more flavor than anything you get at a grocery store (even Whole Foods.) Mmmm mmmm good.
