The Vivid Colors of Nutrition and Gardening Zen

April 3, 2012

I realized this weekend that I must have reached my gardening “vanishing point”. While I most certainly had passed the point of no return a long time ago, I feel like I’m finally approaching the place I want to be with all of this.

So why this revelation?

I’m not exactly sure, but being able to notice the sun shining through these young Red Russian kale against the backdrop of the late afternoon sun (for no particular reason), then taking the time to squat down and frame this picture from 2 inches above the dirt may have been my moment of gardening Zen. 😉

Who knows, a modest Buddha may find its way behind the fence.

I think Mrs cohutt would approve, although she did make me take the creepy doll head I dug up off of the display stake. (She’s no fun sometimes.)

    This is beautiful and I too find my most peaceful moments in the garden. I actually took a picture this evening of my 7 yr old sitting with his bottom in the dirt right by the kale. He was supposed to be collecting some for dinner but apparently needed a moment to zen out (or play) in the dirt!

      Either that or a mandated break built into his United Farm Workers’ contract. 😉
