Crops:  Basil, Bell Peppers, Carrots, Cucumbers, Green beans, Lavender, Lettuce, Oregano, Peas, Potatoes, Raspberries, Rosemary, Squash, Strawberries, Sugar Snap Peas, Thyme, Tomatoes

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I'm getting dirty because growing crops is truly healing! Yes...the food tastes great. But there is so much more to horticulture than tending plants. The whole experience, from start to finish (and it never really does "finish"), is amazingly healing and helps remind me that the gift of life is full of change and hope! It is fun to eat and share what the plants produce, but it is even more enjoyable to be a part of the healing horticultural experience!

    Roots, it sounds like you're having quite a good year in the garden. My tomatoes are coming along. No ripe ones yet. Cucumbers are coming along, too. My peas are just ready now. I look forward to digging up the potatoes. Aren't they just like magic? I love the treasure hunt!
