A Will to Live
A Survival Story
I took a few pictures today of plants in my Small Kitchen Garden. These endured over 72 days of 100f./38c.temperatures and months of neglect due to personal complications. I gave them up for dead by August. They had a will to live and fought back to survive the brutal conditions afforded them. I must admit these living things impressed me even more than I would have thought. I'm convinced the Earth will survive in spite of us. They have also increased my will to be a be better steward of my life and surroundings. They were only fertilized with compost tea from the home pile and the worm bin. This also kept my lawn alive during the harsh weather conditions.
