|Our big black cauldron of life, death and rebirth, (aka the compost bin,)|
provided our garden with a whole wheel barrel full of life-giving soil!
We pondered these mysteries as we shoveled this lovely fertile compost into the garden bed, knowing that from death and decay, new life would soon burst forth! When you work the earth to grow some of your own food, it seems such a shame to waste even the inedible parts of the plant, after all, those stalks and leaves worked so hard in the sun and rain to provide our family with sustenance. Returning them with honor to the earth from which they came seems appropriate, and the reward for our effort is the opportunity to bring new health giving life back into the world!
