Buddhism, veganic gardening, compassion, and the vegan life calls all to deepen our relationships with Mother Earth and each other. Live sustainably, authentically, and lightly on the Earth. Manifest compassion for all sentient beings. The world is an altar. Worship in love.
fit of grandiloquence, my hard-working husband two weekends ago took down the last
of the veggie garden. He meant well, although I was a little disappointed that all of a sudden, the rest of the food plants (although
admittedly waning) went bye-bye.
tenacious yellow squash, nasturtium, and Russian kale just yesterday poked out
from under the ruins of fallen tomato, bean, eggplant, cucumber, and hot pepper
plants. Two young squash, two gourds, and a thriving kale plant are reaching for
the last of the sun. Little troopers.
When I saw it I danced, then ran into the
house and asked my husband to please leave them alone for now. I might even
continue to cultivate the kale, which is a cold-loving plant.
moderately anemic, and kale is a top iron-rich food for people with this
condition, so I eat as much as possible. And yellow squash is just yummy, and Todd
loves it. I’ll gratefully harvest garden food for as long as I can, right up to
the first snow.
