    When I finally have a place of my own i'd love

    to have a little allotment of my own to grow stuff. I have a herb garden and grow tomatoes and strawberries but don't really have the space for much else. My partner's father has a vegetable patch behind his house and I'm very envious sometimes.

    When I Get My Own Place

    I really never had any love for gardening.  My mother was always gardening, flowers mostly.  I worked for the park and was a gardener's helper and that didn't really turn me on, although I liked being outside.  But lately I have been having simple dreams. ...

    I started my first compost bin today It was

    fun, relaxing. As I did it I tuned in to the world around me. The sky, leaves in trees, the smell of cool black earth, clouds drifting by like slow moving waves, the muscles moving in my body: contracting - expanding. Mindfulness is cool and brings me back to earth. Couple it...
