Garden Hoe

Garden Hoe It’s not as sharp as it used to be. I hear friends say the same of themselves, but I believe that I've grown sharper through my years of gardening, at least in ways that I consider worthy. Now I notice where my herb beds migrate to, and feed the dirt accordingly. I’ve learned if nothing’s there, amend or move along. It never hurts to sow for your own needs, plus more to share, I’ve also learned. And how a drought can lend you time to think and plan. How rain repairs so quickly you forgive the wait. And when to be as blunt as my old chopping hoe, or when to plow loss under, let it go.

Abstract

It’s not as sharp as it used to be. I hear friends say the same of themselves, but I believe that I've grown sharper through my years of gardening, at least in ways that I consider worthy. Now I notice where my herb beds migrate to, and feed the dirt accordingly. I’ve learned if nothing’s there, amend or move along. It never hurts to sow for your own needs, plus more to share, I’ve also learned. And how a drought can lend you time to think and plan. How rain repairs so quickly you forgive the wait. And when to be as blunt as my old chopping hoe, or when to plow loss under, let it go. DANA WILDSMITH
