The beginning of fall is always bitter sweet. With changing leaves and cooler temperatures marking the end of summer, there is such an energy shift in our bodies! While summer provided us with light and carefree attitudes, autumn brings with it more introspective energies that leave us wanting to stay snuggled in and pensive. We must be able to tune into these energies as the weather goes through this transition in order to keep us feeling at our prime this season.
There’s nothing quite like the appearance of a productive garden in the summer, abuzz with bees and other friendly pollinators attracted by the enticing aroma and vibrant color of the plants. Imagine walking out your front door to edible greens, flower petals and other aromatic herbs that can be used both for culinary and medicinal purposes. After all, herbs are food, and food is medicine; hence herbs are medicine! Just keep that in mind. 😉 It’s easy to imagine what you want your garden to look like, but PLANNING it? That’s a whole different story. There are so many questions you may have such as, “Which plants do what for the body? What ailments should I plan for? When and where should I plant? Can I really eat that?!” This is the perfect time of year to be thinking about this since spring is right around the corner!
