29 Mar The Yard Philosophy
We want our cities green and our lunches home-grown. Cultivation is to create something with simple means. And the soil on our hands makes us all participants and creators.
Like so many other gardening geeks we like to work with our bare hands. No gloves and our fingers running deep into the soil as so much of the sensation sits in the fingertips.
A gorgeous feeling that can be wrecked by chapped hands, soil-stained fingernails – with cracked cuticles, scratches, splinters and thorns. A day spent in the spinach patch can easily leave marks. But to us growing and cultivating is supposed to be good fun and also sensory in working with your hands, even after a shift at the office.
SING A SONG OF SEASONS!
SOMETHING BRIGHT IN ALL!
FLOWERS IN THE SUMMER,
FIRES IN THE FALL!.
