One such plant being a small Christmas tree from 2 years ago that we planted in a pot to live on our deck after Christmas. It’s my baby Spruce as I like to call it. I have a very special place in my heart for Blue Spruce trees. So much so that when we were discussing names for my daughter before we knew the sex, we could not think of a boy’s name to save our lives. We had already used our favorite boy’s name on my son 3 years earlier.
This pepper plant is the very first plant I have ever grown on my own that has produced any source of food, without counting the help of parents as a kid or assisting at Patricia and Aaron’s vineyard. I’m a late bloomer when it comes to growing plants, and although I did not start it from seed or anything like that, I am still very proud of myself.
I never thought growing your own food could be so rewarding. You feel attached to it almost, and I am sure eating something you grew yourself will induce another set of emotions altogether. I know I need to settle down because it is not like I ran a marathon or anything, although in my mind I kind of feel like I did! If growing a pepper feels this good I can only imagine...lol!
I am growing my very first pepper. One small step for mankind! Maybe there is hope? Maybe I could nurture a field of trees, pumpkins, and in the dream of course there are beautiful flowers and herbs too. Feeling humble I’m brought back to
‘Think big, start small’...
The dream continues...
What about you? Have you ever found unexpected joy in nurturing a plant? Have you taken a small baby step that made you feel closer to your dream?
