Green for the mind
I read the other day that nature calms your mind and makes you feel balanced, even when looking at it on a computer screen. So to calm and balance your mind, I'd like to present... the greens that grow enthusiastically in our home!
I really enjoy how spring in announcing itself by the first shy flower buds unfolding, little sprouts popping their heads above the soil and new leafs unwrapping. I'm already excited to start a new round in my veggie garden. Especially because I have this great book to assist me.
By the way, the second picture shows this plant 7 months after sowing.
Now that I'm writing this, a though crossed my mind... Wouldn't it be nice to trade some green?
If you have some spare seeds (or even a little plant, to trade if you live in my neighborhood or are in one of my courses) it would be fun to trade it with you for a little present with a 'green theme' from my hand!
I did buy some seeds the other day (cherry tomato, regular tomato, parsnip, round courgette, paprika, peas, pumpking, rocket salade, spinach and shallots) but would love to have more variation!
If you have seeds you'd like to trade (even if you live outside the Netherlands) for a 'surprise green pressie' please email me.
Update: I received so many lovely seeds and gifts from all over the world, thanks to everyone who joined in on my 'green swap', it made y day(s)! The swap is now closed.
