Whether you have a window box in your city apartment or acres of land, May is a great time to get into gardening. The temperatures are finally warming up, and the soil is perfect for sowing seeds (warmer soil allow for faster germination and growth).
Planting flowers and bulbs can be meditative and healing for the soul. And, like mindfulness, gardening takes work. It begins with a commitment to care for the garden and provide it with what it needs to grow.
Stay in the moment as you enjoy the sunshine, the dirt in your hands, and the sounds of the birds and insects that inhabit your garden area. If you are in the city, think of the smiles your flower or veggie box will bring to passersby. And if you’re lucky enough to have your own plot of land, take some time step back when you finish planting or weeding and admire the fruits of your labor.
