Equinox. Rebirth. The representation of new life and light, new beginnings, path and seeds.
Seeds? Read on. You’ll see.
The equinox represents the need for balance because the day and night are equal in length. The first day of spring begins at 5:24 pm EDT. Now the days grow longer as light wins over the darkness. At least until the fall.
A little more practically speaking it is the time to start new projects and get rid of unneeded dross.
Today, on the farm, is the day we plant our spring and summer gardens. Here’s what we’ll be eating soon. Bell peppers , peas, corn, green beans, hot peppers of many varieties, squash, tomatoes, zucchini, carrots, garlic and onions and spinach. A little later in the spring we’ll plant butternut squash, pumpkin and broccoli.
We also have some fruits that grow all year long. Peaches, apples, raspberries and strawberries came with the farm. We have yet to eat any strawberries because those little jerks we call dogs smell them when they are ripe and eat them off the vine.
Of course there are flowers and herbs. The flowers are perennials and the herbs are grown in pots. While we don’t have a working farm, we do grow a lot of food in a small plot near the house.
Enjoy the day.
Perhaps you can dance in the moonlight.
