Permaculture Harvest despite Chaos!

“As the world teeters once more on the brink of chaos, in the forms of war and nuclear contamination from Fukushima, getting the harvest home and planning for next Spring is a way of keeping one’s sanity!”
So true! Yesterday my dad sent me an insightful look at the Syria situation, but it so obviously showed only one partisan side of the story. I concluded the rant that inspired with, “I don’t know what’s worse. Since the end goal has always been to take down America, it doesn’t matter which is worse. They both stink to low hell. …” And then? I went back to the garden. I manifested more flowering bushes; I ate some deliciously fresh, real food from the Earth; I planned the Fall/Winter garden, the garden next Spring. I continued updating various local people interested in my idea of planting an Urban Food Forest. In an insane world, it’s good to remember what’s real.

Garlic is harvested, dried and stored…just in time for re-planting the crop for next year, in just a few more weeks.

    Remember what’s real…

    What is real? Breathing. Feeling. Not to plummet into despair and hopelessness. Insanity is real too, in its own tangled, convoluted way. Earth will manage somehow, always, to evolve and transform, in spite or because of human drama, folly and mishandling. Love and peace is real. Blessings on us all.
