Creating time to grow foodPosted: June 25, 2011
Wisdom from Modern Victory Garden:
“What works best is to have the garden be a regular part of our every day lives (all through the year) and to do smaller amounts of work on a much more frequent basis.”
I could not agree more. Thankfully I can stack all my work phone calls into each afternoon and complete them while walking around the garden doing these daily light chores. I have other friends who can schedule their freelance work jobs around their garden’s seasonal needs; they work a lot in the winter, not as much in the summer.
I’ve also experimented with getting up earlier than normal with the sunlight and getting 20-30 minutes of scythe work in, cutting our pasture. It’s enjoyable and meditative…and knocks off one more item on my task list before the kids even get up!
