figure out how to have a garden.

Even if your garden is only a clay pot on your back porch, figure out how you can have your own little patch of earth to grow things in. Find a spot - any spot - enrich the dirt with some potting soil and then plant something. Water it. Watch it. Feed it. Then get ready to be blessed. Few things are more rewarding and therapeutic than getting your hands in the dirt and watching something grow. I am amazed every time. How can putting such tiny seeds in the dirt yield such a rich bounty? Be it zinnias or cucumbers... grow something.
