It’s June! summer has arrived and it’s almost time for many of us to harvest our first squash, beans and tomatoes!
I have worked very diligently on my compost for the last 12 months to make sure that it would be perfect for my vegetable garden project this summer. Now I have pumpkins, tomatoes, squash, peaches, berries, and nore, swiss chard and more veggies and fruits growing divinely and profusely.
This Sunday is just gorgeous. My vegetables plants, bulbs, limes, lemons orange and mandarin trees are full with fruit and rain drops on their leaves.
It is winter but my tomatoes are enchanting! Something I notice this season is that they are bigger and sweeter. I wonder. Maybe it’s because I used my own compost last year, since april I started creating my own compost and started using it in the fall with my tomatoes and citrus.
The branches are so heavy they are bending down, that’s why I had to get some bamboo pieces to straighten them up. It was so much fun to do it. The smell of the wet dirt with the one coming from the wet oranges and limes, it’s just to die for!
When I am not out cycling on the weekend, I love to take care of my plants. I have so many and in Winter I have as much work to do in the yard as in Spring and Summer, because I have to plant carrots, onion, garlic, etc., and I need to start preparing the dirt and seeds for the coming planting season and for Spring.
Nature is amazing, isn’t it?
I have always loved nature. Call it forest, oceans, animals, humans, lakes, air, sun, stars and anything beyond earth; micro and macro-systems, ecosystems. Breathing life, constantly, living the moment fully, integrating my thoughts with nature to feel myself alive, and not alone.
