Things will just spring up when you’re not looking!

People who know us well also know that we like to keep an urban farm in the backyard. Oh, we’re not raising livestock like some folks. But we do like the idea of doing some of the work of feeding ourselves, instead of just leaving it to the real farmers.

The interesting thing about combining our food-growing habits with a travelling lifestyle is that things will just spring up when we’re not looking. Suddenly, that lettuce that we planted from seed is up, and it’s already a couple of inches high, big enough to use in a baby-greens salad. Or the seeds from tomatoes that didn’t quite break down in the compost have pioneered in some sunny spot in the corner.  In the work world, this can happen too.  Are there some areas of your work that you’ve been ignoring, because you’re too busy on a project, trying to land the next big assignment, or fighting another fire? Take a look in those corners…something might be growing there. And if you’re lucky, it might even be something you’ll be able to use to feed yourself (metaphorically speaking, at least).

Happy harvesting,

Megann & Steve
