I try to garden wherever I live.
It puts me in touch with the land, the wights of the land and my body. I have a dreadful time exercising just to exercise, but getting exercise doing physical labor? I will do that without thinking about it.

It also puts me in touch with the Vanir(despite the fact recent scholarship has suggested there is no Vanir family, that Snorri Sturlson stuck them together, but that's a whole 'nother Oprah).

I'm very lucky where I live now. There is a pretty big patch (maybe 6'x12') patch of yard run to weeds which qualifies as my "backyard". I'm in the process of digging that up to turn into a garden. The soil, typical Colorado soil, is full of rocks and deep rooted weeds. So there's a lot of "sweat equity" involved in what I'm doing.

I love springtime.
