The Cycle Starts

I have a day off. It's warm and clear and the garden appears dry enough to till so that's the plan for today. All the tomatoes, peppers and such are growing and will be ready to go out in a few weeks as soon as the soil warms and the dangers of a late frost are out of the picture. I could wax poetic about how this is the evolution of the Goddess from the wise old hag of winter into the fertile young Goddess of Spring with all the promise that that brings but let us just say that for us gardeners it is an exciting time. Yes, it is the beginning of a lot of hard work and if you are a serious gardener it is also a mystical time. All the myriad generations of birth, life and death are safety stored in all the seeds and bulbs and a just waiting to have at it again.

Now the challenges of drought, flood, insects and weeds will challenge us for the next few months as we try and coax another harvest from our Mother Earth. Off to play in the dirt and begin the flirtation with the Goddess. Will the love and effort be returned? We shall know soon enough.
