Grow your Own ~Planting time

Spring here in the UK has been a long while in coming. I think its been the longest 7 months I can remember, as last years wash-out Summer spilled into a wet cool Autumn, which ended with the coldest winter in over 50 years. Spring seemed to never want to spring as we had yet more deep snow, and even now the buds are only just showing us their green tips as they sleepily awake from their cold winters slumber. The chill is still in the air.

Onions and Shallots. White and Red.So today I went with Hubby to take a few photos..  as even I managed to get down and plant a few onion sets last week which were watered today as we have had strong winds which are drying out the earth this week.

In the front are 6 rows of Potatoes, there are 4 more rows to put in.The Potatoes are in, We have earliest and the main crop. We are putting 10 rows in this year.. Potatoes here have risen in price due to many farmers fields being flooded and waterlogged.. The potatoes are lying in the ground unable to be harvested as the machinery cannot get through the water-logged fields so they lay rotting.

The Bean poles are in, but the Beans are not set yet,Seeds being Chitted too early and cold. But we will start them off in the green house.. Like we are doing the sweet corn. which is already sprouting.

In front of the Beans Poles we set the Parsnips these were started off  by germinating on our window sills on damp kitchen paper, the term is called chitting They are soaked and kept damp and warm to encourage sprouting. Before being planted in the ground.. We did this with our Beetroot too and they are just showing above the ground new growth.

Rhubarb coming through and we transplanted the Raspberry canes

On the left is the Rhubarb coming through and those rows of sticks you see on the Right are the Raspberry canes which my hubby thinned out this year and transplanted. Our Raspberries rotted in the rain last year as did our Strawberries. The little bush to the bottom right is a Gooseberry bush. 

So this year I took all the newTop raised bed-Strawberries middle is Luttuce -bottom Spring Onions and raddish shoots off the old Strawberry plants and replanted in a raised bed freshly prepared with good compost and manure at the base. We created 3 raised beds seen here.  the others will have Salad foods grown in them such as spring onions, lettuce, and herbs.

Transplanted Strawberries

 

The weather has been so cold, that most of our plants have been started off on window sills in our home, then they have been transferred to the cold frame in the allotments.. Below you can see the brassica selections of Various Cabbages, January Kings, Savoy Kale etc just starting to sprout nicely.

In the cold frame, Cabbages Various and Kale

So, We have made a start, All the hard work goes to my husband who has been putting 2 hours in the allotments each day preparing and digging in the manure and clearing it ready for planting..

We have also put into pots the Tubas of the Begonias  which have been over wintered in dry compost in the side shed of our home. These are going in the baskets and pots around our home. 

I hoped you enjoyed your own garden and if you don’t have much of a garden you can always start growing various things in pots which look good on Patio’s and Balconies.  Such as Strawberries and Tomatoes in hanging baskets..

Enjoy your Garden and outdoors…and I am happy to once again be able to Grow my own in the outdoors as the weather is improving..

 

Take Up Your Arrow!

Take Up The Arrow

 

 

Our Circle Asked White Feather this question..

 

Trance Circle 7th Jan 2007.

 

Is there any other advice that you can give us at this moment in time to help ourselves or mankind to gain the most benefit from?

 

Small steps small steps, you are taking small steps, and we are well pleased with the steps taken so far. Do not run before you can walk.

 We have aimed an arrow, and it has fell in the correct place at each of your feet. It is up to you as individuals to take up the arrow and use it wisely….

We cannot determine how you live your lives. For you all have free will.

But we would ask, that as individuals, your intent, your view on life be reviewed and looked at in a different light to what you have perhaps done so in the past.

 Think not of just yourselves, but act selflessly.

Think of others and go forward. .. The Human race needs your love..

This little group of openhearted souls, eventually, we say eventually. Do not run, do not run. Will have its result. Will have its proof, Will bring that proof to the world as a whole.. How and when it will happen how is not for you not know.

 

For if we were to tell you the truth in essence now, you would run in the forests and hide.

 

 So we say take up the arrow, aim it well, you are not just a hunter.. You are gathering all to you, all that is important at this time. Are you not gathering knowledge to your selves?

 We are.

Are you not finding doors opening that you thought were closed? .. Stand firm, stand tall, aim straight, pull back your bow and let go. And know that where that arrow falls it is meant to be.  You are all meant to be.  At that place at that moment in time.

Fear not where it takes, but know deep within your own hearts the truth, feel it embrace it. …. For the door to our realm are about to open. And with it glad tidings we bring. For the world at this moment needs the truth.

All of you are experiencing what you are thinking is the truth. You perceive all of these things differently, each and every one of you perceive differently. We perceive things from the truths.

 

Thank you friend for allowing us to put the questions.

 

The Earth plane at this time ..is altering, as you know. The threads that you weave now as we have stated before will be woven into a larger blanket. ..

This will envelope those who wish to embrace that truth and knowledge..

You will not embrace all my friends. For all will turn and take their eyes away from truths love and light.

Many will wish to follow darker paths…

This is why we in our realm find it a necessity to intervene and we use the word intervene lightly, for we are not allowed to change free will of mankind.

 But we wish to help, to show him the error of thought and place him once again upon the paths of righteousness.

 

 This is no mean feet friends. This is serious business.

 

 You have all been chosen you all agreed to be chosen .Now is the time of your own truth where you stand tall and move one step forward into your own light.

Do so without fear friends, be not like our vehicle and shiver.

 

Thank you White feather. We thank you for allowing our questions to be asked, and for the answers we have received.

 

The Vehicle he referred to was myself, as I still was not comfortable in Trance state at that time. I first published this back in 2009 I now no longer sit for trance-work, but I do feel our Native American brothers close often in my Spiritual Work. 

I have added this entry now, as I feel many of us are now taking up our Arrows, and waking up to the truth that is surrounding us. Our Eyes are being opened to what is happening around our Globe.. 

Great hardships surround many places and people..

It is time for us all to search out the truth of our world, and follow our instincts and share once again our hearts with each other. We need to bring balance back. We need to align again with Nature and learn to help one another by sharing and caring for one another.

I have added a link Here to a new page I have added about the Hopi Prophecies 

Question, Seek out Truth, and Embrace Peace.

Protect Our Food!

 Its not often I share an email with you all but today is an exception.

I am a member of AVAAZ.Org  “Avaaz—meaning "voice" in several European, Middle Eastern and Asian languages—launched in 2007 with a simple democratic mission: organize citizens of all nations to close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want.” 

I would ask you all to look into these facts and judge for yourselves. I have spoken upon this subject before in 2009 in my post Corn Dance~Seeds of Truth 

Growing our own food and collecting their seeds is an important part of our sustainability and we all need to be aware how important Self-Sufficiency is now becoming. We need to take a good look at how our world is being controlled and manipulated from monopoly corporations.  Please as I always say, don’t believe one word I say, Go find out for yourselves! and look up the herbicides Round Up which are being used too!   

Below is the email, Please feel free to forward this post and the link to Sign the petition which is highlighted in Red below.. Many thanks Sue

Dear Avaazers,

It’s unbelievable, but Monsanto and Co. are at it again. These profit-hungry biotech companies have found a way to exclusively ‘own’ something that freely belongs to us all — our food! They’re trying to patent away our everyday vegetables and fruits like cucumber, broccoli and melons, forcing growers to pay them and risk being sued if they don’t.
But we can stop them from buying up Mother Earth. Companies like Monsanto have found loopholes in European law to get away with this, so we just need to close them shut before they set a dangerous global precedent. And to do that, we need key countries like Germany, France and the Netherlands — where opposition is already growing — to call for a vote to stop Monsanto’s plans. The Avaaz community has shifted governments before, and we can do it again.
Many farmers and politicians are already against this — we just need to bring in people power to pressure these countries to keep Monsanto’s hands off our food.

Sign now and share with everyone to help build the biggest food defence call ever:
http://www.avaaz.org/en/monsanto_vs_mother_earth_don/?blGazab&v=23900

Once a patent exists in one country, trade agreements and negotiations often push other countries to honour it as well. That’s why these food patents change everything about how our food chain works: for thousands of years, farmers could choose which seeds they’d use without worrying about getting sued for violating intellectual property rights. But now, companies launch expensive legal campaigns to buy patents on conventional plants and force farmers to pay exorbitant royalty fees. Monsanto and Co. claim that patents drive innovation — but in fact they create a corporate monopoly of our food.
But luckily, the European Patent Office is controlled by 38 member states who, with one vote, can end dangerous patents on food that is bred using conventional methods. Even the European Parliament has issued a statement objecting to these kinds of destructive patents. Now, a massive wave of public outcry could push them to ban the patenting of our everyday food for good.
The situation is dire already — Monsanto alone owns 36% of all tomato, 32% of sweet pepper and 49% of cauliflower varieties registered in the EU. With a simple regulatory change, we could protect our food, our farmers and our planet from corporate control — and it’s up to us to make it happen:
http://www.avaaz.org/en/monsanto_vs_mother_earth_don/?blGazab&v=23900

The Avaaz community has never been afraid to stand up to corporate capture of our institutions, from pushing back the Rupert Murdoch mafia, to helping ensure that telecoms keep their hands off our Internet. Now it’s time to defend our food supply from this corporate takeover.
With hope and determination,

Jeremy, Michelle, Oli, Dalia, Pascal, Ricken, Diego and the whole Avaaz team

My Creative Art~Trees

Oh mighty brothers that reach up high

Your branches swaying in breeze from sky

Tell me as I sit beneath your shade

What wisdom have you for me today..

Spring one with your leaves so fresh

Your colours of green replenish and re-fresh

Your blossoms shower us in petals so light

From winters sleep you grow in delight

Summer Oh how you please

As you rustle your full grown leaves

Your breath so pure so we may breathe

I pray this Earth you never leave

Autumn of golden rich fruits you carry

To sustain life in harvest berries

Fallen leaves and wood for the fire

Replenishing larders, of you I never tire

Winter with your ever-greens

White coats of snow on branches gleam

In your forests shelter you bring

Silent and tall as you sleep until Spring

Lets not forget our brothers the Tree 

Hundred of years they stand still and ‘see’

Majestic and strong they give life to all

Save our trees don’t let them fall.

Spring VortexSummer Vortex

Autumn GoldWinter Silence

Above are the paintings I did,while taking time out. Trees are so important, and I love nothing better to sit beneath a tree and meditate feeling its energy.

Our Relationship to the Earth has changed as we have become more aware of how our actions can affect the balance of Nature, we are beginning to see ourselves as part of the Global Community and we are embracing a more heart-centred common goal of preservation. Trees are part of that community and we need to understand how important a part Tree’s play in our lives..

They not only bring us the very oxygen we breath, but they give homes to thousands of species of insects and birds providing not only food and shelter but the very habitat that those species need to survive, as well as food, fuel, and shelter for us Humans, When the trees start dying, then the insects have no home and also die, this has a knock on effect around the whole eco system.We must not forget we are part of that knock on effect.

Trees teach us the importance of renewal as they shed their leaves and seeds, their outer achievements and find strength and vitality through a period of rest in the winter months, They teach us stillness, about slowing down, and finding contentment within. They show us the importance of having strong roots to maintain stability.

We are destroying the lungs of the Earth as the many forests are cut down.. Here is a site which explains what you can do to conserve Trees.

Remember the ‘Standing Ones’ as they were once known, and let us remember they give us our very breath we breathe, we owe them a debt of gratitude. They need our respect. Enjoy your walks, Enjoy your Trees, and Enjoy Nature..

Peaceful Beginnings

Having taken time out recently from my Blogging Community I’ve become aware just how many of us are now seeking to alter our own personal space as we ‘Tune in’ once again to our own personal Vibration.

Spring is all about renewal, rebirth and growth and I think many of us are seeing how important it is for us to find Balance in our modern day to day busy life styles.

As I type, the whole world every moment is re-tuning, altering and raising her vibration as evolution takes us on this next phase of our Earthly Journey.  Many of us may feel we are in uncharted waters, each of us waiting in expectation of this next phase of our existence.

My own personal changes have I admit been hard to adjust to. Why? because I’ve always had an active working career while being committed at the same time to my Spiritual work. This year I promised myself to pursue the things I love doing, Painting being one. Slowing down and learning to take things in your stride, you would think easy. But its hard to change the habits of a life time as we learn to say that little word No to others as we learn to please ourselves more.

Spring Vortex  Spring Vortex

As our vibrations alter more and more are now recognising the ‘Signs’ which are there for all of us which guide our daily lives. I picked up a spiritual magazine the other day, and as I flicked through the many pages of ways of connecting to your higher/inner-self I smiled as I read the many advertisements to enrol in this course or that. It reminded me I had been on my Spiritual Quest for the best part of 40 years as I pursued this and that as I’d gained my diploma’s in healing and other alternative therapies.  I had read the spiritual books which line my bookshelves, I had done the various meditation techniques, I had done the vegetarian years..

Now it is time to listen to that small voice within. Each of us hold the keys of knowledge, and the higher your vibration rises then more of you will learn to tap into your inner vibration,

The Knowledge is within.

You will learn to discern with your intuition, your feelings,  for you are unique only you can tap into you. You will know when its time to change. What  you may also notice as your vibration alters is that your body may hurt as you adjust to your new found frequency. You may have headaches, Pains in your bones, stomach upsets. Your memory may appear to play tricks on you. You may find the company you keep in your circle of friends start to clash.  You may get the urge to change jobs, careers, location.. You need to know this is the time for regrowth a time for balancing. Shedding past trauma’s, letting Go of old wounds.

When life gets too much,I rebalance by getting out into Nature, or sitting in my own silent space painting or knitting.   We are all to often bombarded with negative energies as the communications systems overload our brains to bursting point with Negative news. Its hard to re-programme your mind which for generations have been influenced by our upbringing and surroundings.

If we look to Nature we see she doesn’t argue or strive to be superior, you will find she thrives by co-existing with her neighbouring species of animal or plant. Just open your eyes and see how everything is interconnected at some level.

We are not separate from Nature, we are part of her, but somehow we’ve come to believe we are superior-knowing better than Mother Nature, thinking we can do a better job. As a consequence we’ve interfered with and upset the Balance of her exquisite creation.

Anyone who lives out in the country knows that when man leaves his scars upon her, deep though they maybe, once man moves on, Nature eventually will reclaim the land back, restoring, reseeding and regenerating. If you look how water flows, you will see it finds its own path, Nature too is finding her path, always evolving, restoring and adapting.

Mankind has lost much of his direction in the pursuit of Material Wealth. We have lost that flow with Nature, we have forgotten how to breathe and adapt. No longer are we at one with our Earth as we think ourselves Separate. 

I see many now floundering in this vortex of Greed caught in the material trap. Panic setting in as instinctively people feel those changes now taking place around our world.  Our senses are telling us we have to alter our way of being. We are feeling our Energy Changing, you will start to question and seek out ways and means of reaching a more peaceful state of BEing

By all means go on your Pilgrimages, seek out those sacred sites, read your spiritual books, this is all part of our journey as we raise our vibrations, its called Enlightenment. Its been a huge part of my own path.The higher and faster our vibrations resonate, the Lighter we become as we move away from the denseness of Matter. 

But nothing beats the journey than that of Self Discovery as you visit that sacred place within your own soul.

So as Spring is the time we feel energised as we clear out the clutter, do yourselves a favour and clear out some of the debris from your minds and listen to that small voice of silence. Find the time to connect to your own Sacred Space that place which vibrates in harmony within your own being.

Breathe in the energy, become at one with the moment, make this a ritual as you let go of your stresses, go with the flow, let go of your thoughts and find that place inside. And as you learn to let go of your thoughts you will learn to reside in the spaces between them. Listen to the Pin drop, and become the pin.

This is a time where we need to keep Calm and Peaceful, This is the time for Peaceful Beginnings as we let the walls of our Fears fall away.

Learn to connect again to your Inner-self

and learn to love your True Light.

I know I AM

Blessings to you All..

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
