Changing Seasons- Fall Gardening

As another summer comes to an end we have a lot of work to do closing up our gardens for the winter. Gardening is so good for you mind, body and soul. Not only will you connect with Mother Earth but you will get the goodness of Grandfather Sun……have I mentioned lately that I believe the sunshine is good for you and should not be feared.

There is a lot of evidence, most anecdotal, some scientific, about how gardeners live up to 14 years longer than non-gardeners. That’s a pretty impressive life extension and it certainly warrants further research. Certainly, there are many factors involved, but I think there are some key things that gardeners do that could contribute to longer life:

1. Get Enough Vitamin D

2. Play In the Dirt

3. Getting Grounded

4. Stress Relief

5. They Eat Vegetables

6. They Exercise

Nothing is more rewarding than raking, digging, and recycling your hard work and plant nutrients back to the compost pile. Don’t over-do it and a visit to the Chiropractor first can get your bones, back and joints ready for the fun.
