Ground Mending


mend – … to set right … correct … to restore to health … cure … heal …

I learned the garden needed more consistent attention than i was able to provide. I learned the yard in which i broke the ground was a whole that immediately started a process of healing. For the yard, the garden was a wound.

I noticed how the yard worked to heal its wound was similar to how my hand healed a blister i acquired digging. The area around the wound/blister/garden closes in and small areas within spontaneously grow outward.


Another thing i learned was what i thought of as generic blades of grass were just the tip of an extensive underground system of interconnected roots, a woven organic fabric, a natural network that provoked green to rise to healing light.
