Nature's Bounty Of 30 Cherry Tomatoes
Posted by Neerad Trivedi on Aug 11, 2017
What started as a space for individual cultivation slowly emerged and metamorphed into a beautiful Awakin community. Today, there are more than 15 people attending Awakin's regularly and bringing change in their own ways.
I was reminded of a story of a friend who sent us cherry tomatoes all the way from Udaipur. The friend thought it was some kind of dry sweet so gave it to us after a week. When we opened the box it was stinking with rotting tomatoes. My mom thought instead of throwing it away, why not offer it to the plants so it can compost faster.
Little did we know that after a couple of weeks some seeds would make it and literally grow into a new plant. Long story short, We harvested as many as 30 cherry tomatoes last month.
We never saw what was emerging and their is a beauty in the way nature allows for everything to prosper and nurture it till it finds its right place in the world.
