Gazing upon my humble balcony micro-garden this morning, I could not believe my eyes! The tomato vines were dotted with tens of green, healthy fledgling tomatoes. Amazing! Spring has just started.
Last year I grew tomato plants without a crop. I don’t think the soil was fertile enough. The plants themselves grew strong, but bore no fruit. Those plants were store-bought.
The freakishly warm winter weather this year germinated random tomato seeds in my flower box. These Jack and the beanstalk trainees grew happily with abundant fresh air, sun not to mention occasional compost feed, seaweed plant feed and adequate water.
This reminds us that preparation in conception is the key to success. When we prepare our body with good nutrition, natural sun, fresh air, water and time; a strong healthy baby will more likely ensue! This applies to both the man and woman, and makes sense. Being mindful about what we do, eat, drink, work, live and love can make a huge difference to ourselves and our future. To our soil which sows the seed.
