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.
My husband and I reluctantly said goodbye to summer this weekend by
taking down the veggie garden and collecting the last of the food. Then we gave
the potted garden the Chelsea Chop (a brutal pruning nearly to the soil line in some cases, but which helps encourage new winter growth indoors) and brought them inside to the
sunny bank of windows near the rear of the house, where they’ll give us some
beauty and fragrance in winter.
Here you see the young avocado trees, ginger, lemongrass,
lemon scented geranium, flowering geranium. These are always sad times for me.
It was a wonderful, prosperous summer in the garden. Thank you, Mother Earth! xoxoxo
