Gardening Series, Part 17
Caring for Your Garden

Revised: May 22, 2022

The Gardening Series


after planting

When you have finished planting, we encourage you to take a moment to gaze happily over your newly planted co-creative garden and appreciate what you and your nature partner have accomplished.

You started a new relationship, you learned how to communicate with an "invisible" partner who speaks an entirely different language and together, you planted a garden. That's pretty darn cool!

What happens next? You care for your garden. You and your partner.

New to This?

Don't skip this message thinking you missed out on the season.

You can get started with co-creative gardening anytime, and begin learning from the point you're at right now. There is no reason for a late start to keep you from beginning. You don't even have to know anything about gardening. You can start with a container on your porch if you like. If you already have a garden going, bringing nature on board will only add to your success and increase the strength and balance of your garden.

Everyone must start at the beginning. But after you take that first step (it takes hardly any time at all!), come back to this article and continue with us through the rest of the season. All you need is The Perelandra Garden Workbook.

Gut Gardeners and 2.0 Gardeners

We're going to break your next chapter into two pieces. This week, pour yourself a lemonade, have a seat and read page 195 through the end of the first paragraph on page 202. Machaelle will give you an organized approach to keep your garden maintenance well in hand through the coming season.

Gut Gardeners, you don't have to use PKTT where questions are posed. You will continue to rely on your intuition as you think about and wonder what most needs your attention and care.

And 2.0 Gardeners, don't get locked in to always using PKTT. Be sure to allow nature to communicate with you through your intuition as you spend time in your garden. A co-creative partnership is much more than a list of yes/no questions. (Imagine if your only communication with a human partner or co-worker involved just yes/no questions and answers! Ugh.) Enjoy the opportunities to listen and work with nature in new ways while in your garden this summer.
