What You Get From a Garden

WHAT YOU GET FROM A GARDEN

Visible gratitude.
Small surprises.
Metaphors.
Antidotes for too much thought.
A place to do some thinking.
A place to slash and burn and feel good about it.
A dozen shades of green.
Solveable problems.
More than you put in.
Permission to be muddy.
A model of God’s efficiency
And extravagance
A chance to see the whole wheel turn
A feast of color
Encounters with interesting creatures
Patience
A place to “practice resurrection”
Zucchini for the whole neighborhood
A place to practice military strategy on small predators
A chance to start over
