Springtime: A Celebration of Death

As I’ve spent countless hours the last couple                                                                               of months tilling, planting, and veggiesweeding my vegetable garden, I’ve come to appreciate more and more the beauty that is life…and death. Just think about it. Where does food truly come from? It comes from the earth, the dirt, which is composed of decomposing organic matter. From this decay of once living plants and animals, new life is nourished. If I did not add new compost to my garden each year, the soil would eventually become dry and rocky, unable to support life.

Death plays a vital role in sustaining life on Earth. Without the nourishment it provides, there would be no Spring, no beautiful blossoms, no fruit, no veggies, no food, no life. Life cannot exist without death. They are mutually dependent upon one another. In essence, they are one in the same in the ever changing process and continuous cycle of life and death. As we all watch our gardens grow and spring into life, let’s not forget to appreciate where it all comes from.
