Yesterday we got to pick the first beans from our new garden. I hope you have a much bigger garden, but I am quite enjoying these first steps.
It’s my biggest manifestation so far. Ever since I moved here, I looked at one corner of the backyard and thought that that would be a great place for a Hügelkultur garden.
But I didn’t quite have the energy to start. Or knew how to get everything together that I would need without a truck.
Still, I kept imagining my garden there. And then, one day, my neighbour said that he was afraid that the wall in that corner that I picked for the garden, separating the two properties, would break and asked if he could put something there to stabilize it.
So, he, together with his son-in-law built my Hügelkultur garden. They brought endless amounts of earth, It was really amazing.
I helped a bit too, but most of the days I was working and just looking out of the window and watching my dreams come true. Hard to believe indeed.
I started growing some seeds at the same time and later planted them there, I added some compost as well to make the ground fertile, but I’ve not really had to do anything else but watch the magic unfold.
And now I can eat and enjoy. Life can be miraculous. I do hope yours is still as well.
