This year was the first year I tried to grow some veg. Gardening has never appealed to me. Both of my parents came from farming stock and had green fingers. When I was a child they used to ask my sisters and me to help them with the gardening. I could never understand why they enjoyed gardening and used to run a mile at the very mention of the word.
I definitely do not have green fingers, I generally forget to feed and water plants and so eventually my neglect kills them. This year I felt a new ability to commit to grow something from seed. I am surprised by what I have learnt through this process. My spiritual mum Ve always says ‘if you want to know how God works look at nature.’ I have to agree with her as I have discovered growing plants really does give you a window into the way God the creator works.
