I finally received my first kickstarter project last week, and needless to say I check up on my plants every couple of hours to see if they have any new developments.
I backed the Smart Herb Garden from Click & Grow, and it’s thrilling to watch my plants grow.
It reminds me how, as a kid in science class, we would grow and dissect pea plants much like Mendeleev did in the nineteenth century, except we would experiment with growing plants in the light versus the dark.
Of course, the Smart Herb Garden makes planting herbs (of the legal sort) a breeze. All I have to do is put in cartridges into the garden, fill up the water tank, and my collection of thyme, lemon balm, and basil will automatically grow itself.
If only there was something I could do to speed up the growing process. I just want it to grow faster.
And that’s who I’ve been for most of my life. Always wanting to grow faster, learn more, and look ahead. I always find myself with people significantly older than me, because I find more interest in what they are doing and what they have to say.
But much like those plants in the garden, some things just take time, and there’s no way around it.
The beauty in gardening is that nature has it’s own course and it’s own timing. The gardener is there merely to facilitate it and provide the conditions necessary for the plant to grow.
Gardening really teaches many people many things. Sam Levin revolutionized a whole education system through gardening.
The life of a farmer is becoming more appealing every moment.
