Harvesting Greens in the Snow

My book designer, Carolyn, is growing beet greens inside her house this winter.

Using a Rubbermaid tote, she made an "earth box" filled with growing media and a wicking moisture media to keep the soil slightly damp. Last summer, this garden-in-a-box lived on her deck. She brought it indoors in October and has been harvesting beet greens ever since.

What would we like to harvest when our inner climate becomes cold, when our lives begin to feel snowed-in?

Right now, while the sun shines on our life, now is the time to plant and water the seeds of meditation.
