Recently I have been coming across quite a few posts regarding folks who are working an allotment, and it has started me thinking. Perhaps there are some folks around my neck of the suburbs who don’t have land, but would like to get dirty, sweaty, and satisfied. I mean, I have cultivatable space and not enough wellness to do much with it. My daughter is trying, but she is so incredibly busy that she cannot do has much as she would like either, and my muscles had the audacity to up and go away to college. How dare he!
So I wonder how you would find a person or two, that would like to dig and weed and toil; to grow some fresh food and flowers. For of course that would be all the payment I could afford to give for their help. It would have to be for the foswab and a share of the bounty the earth would produce.
Still in the sprawling metropolis of LA, who do you trust?
Do I let the necessary protective reticence developed from living amongst thousands upon thousands of strangers, keep me from opening my home (Yes it would have to include the bathroom) for the mutual benefit of us both?
On a happier note, the hummingbirds are nesting on the property again. I think it must be the aloe that is drawing them in, regardless of why, and it is pure speculation on my part, because I haven’t bothered to look into it, I looked up and found a nest! Yippee!
May the Lord bless you in all your endeavors today, Belinda
