Summertime, and the Living is Easy

Summertime, and the living is easy.

These words were not written by a gardener.

Magazine articles and books offer us Easy Living or Gardening Made Easy and promise us a care-free garden.

But we do care about our gardens, and so we worry or we procrastinate or we are bothered. What is your un-ease about your garden today? Weeds? Harvest? Lack of color in the flowerbed? Lack of vegetables in the veggie garden? Too much to do? Not enough time?

Ease of mind and our ease of well-being is found in the present moment. Yes, it's that simple (but not easy :). Let go of the future. Let go of the past. They are just ideas anyway.

Be here in the now of summertime where life is living.
