When An Idea Works
Report From PIA – March 28
On February 18th I wrote about how much I miss my homegrown vegetables in the winter, and my idea to grow salad greens in my shed. Today, I’m rejoicing that this scheme worked. We’ve been picking fresh greens for dinner for the last week, and I’m planning to fill the shed with at least five more crates of greens this fall and next spring.
Sometimes things work as well, or even better, than we’d planned. In those times we rejoice, and plan to build on what has gone well. We can also use the inspiration, information and energy from an achievement to move forward, toward other successes. If this method of growing food in the winter months worked, what other ways can we think of that might also be successful?
When an idea works, it’s an opportunity not to use that success as a place to stand and celebrate, but as a step on a ladder that will lead ever upward.
