Gardening and Social Media
I didn’t start gardening until I moved to Austin.
That’s me I waited until I left the rich black dirt and found the wet brown clay and hot dry sun to figure out growing things could be soul building. By the time I got to Massachusetts I was a regular flower farmer. I spent a hours, days, seasons living in a dormant three-acre spread. In the fifth year I was rewarded to a winding, spectacular show of color.
What Are You Doing to Keep Your Garden Growing?
As a beginning gardener, I learned that just plopping pretty plants into the ground got pretty darn expensive — not to mention time-intensive — It didn’t make lasting beauty. The scratches and the itching sometimes lasted longer. Plants that don’t have the right nutrients or climate are hard to keep thriving.
Soon I was learning what made solid ground for things to grow. Gardening takes strategy and strategy is knowing what you know and knowing what you can and can’t control.
Gardening and social media have a lot in common.
What are you doing to keep your community growing?
I make connections.
