One of my dreams for a long time has been to live a more holistic lifestyle. Living close to nature, drinking water from the spring, and growing our own organic fruits, herbs and vegetables to fuel our bodies and our minds with greatness. Over the years, we’ve certainly taken big steps towards that end. However, the growing our own hasn’t been that successful.
When we were living in the UK, we bought a house with a large garden and decided to create a permaculture garden. At the very back of the garden was an area that was absolutely perfect, so I spent a lot of time clearing the weeds and getting it ready. We were very excited! But then business and life got in the way, and our permaculture garden remained an idea that continued to live in ‘ideas land’.
Some time later, we decided to reignite the idea and this time, chose to turn the flower beds close to the house into vegetable patches, inspired by our friend, Fleur, who had transformed her entire garden into a vegetable patch with great results. Full of enthusiasm, we headed to the garden centre and returned with all kinds of seeds and plants. We were a step closer to our dream.
