Feed Your Head

We’re giving indoor gardening a shot, now that we’ve brought in the vegetable plants from the garden that are still going strong, i.e. two lettuce, two pepper, and four broccoli, we’re up to 75 plants in the house, up from the 69 other potted plants that Momma D has been keeping alive for years.

She is quite the gardener and has been for as long as I can remember.  I realize now I could have learned to start a garden from her, but I still had to travel around the world to experience all of those other things about the farm, the world, freedom

“I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us alright.  No doubt, we find it difficult to choose our direction, because it does not yet exist distinctly in our idea.  The future lies that way to me, but Nature is not indifferent to the way we walk, and there is a right way. Life consists with wildness, and the most alive is the wildest.”

-Thoreau, “Walking”

After we started the garden this summer, I realize I never really kept up on here with how it turned out.

Overall, I’d say we did pretty well, especially since not starting Project Backyard until early July.  That being said, with a decent amount of attendance, we successfully grew food.

So in conclusion, I think I’ve figured out what I want to do with my life for a while.  I want to grow all the parts of my life I can discover from the ground up and I want to write about it.  I want to go on adventures to learn from the world and I want to write about it.  I want to make my own things and be a hobby home but for real farmer, with my friends, and I want to teach myself and others how to feel good naturally.  This is the farm in the making already

I know why I’m here

I’m a child of nature

And absolute freedom
