Garden through the seasons

By Laurena Mayne Davis

All gardeners know that the garden is not just a plot of earth in which to grow fruits, vegetables and herbs, but a soul-nourishing place to be, like an outdoor extension of the home.

I’ll miss the mornings weeding and harvesting, steaming cup of coffee in hand and a dog, couple of cats and clutch of chickens trailing behind me.

Spring and early summer were all about potential and planting, with the infernal foxtail only a distant threat.

Summer was the real work, weeding and watering, and finding new uses for zucchini.


Now, though nearly spent, the garden is still lovely to me in the honeyed light of autumn.
