Do Gardens Evolve?


I’ve been pretty consistent posting here every day. Yes I’ve missed some days, but I’m feeling like it’s time to evolve this garden a little bit.

Does a garden evolve? Or is that the capitalist marketing blogging have a point mindset coming through?

I mean yeah a garden evolves. I might start with beans and lettuce, but then I want I eat spinach or corn, so the garden evolves to make room for those plants.

So I guess what I’m saying is I’m feeling the urge to evolve this space. But to what? I really don’t know. I don’t have a vision for what this garden and digital home will be. Perhaps spending some time with that will help.

I know I don’t want it to be a funnel to get people to sign up for a mailing list or to get my free cookbook or whatever else people sell or give away on their websites. I know I don’t want it to feel market-y and commerce-y. I don’t want it to feel forced. I know I don’t want it to look like everyone else’s website.

Even starting with what I know it’s NOT can be powerful and helpful. Cause it invites in the space for what it can be. Even if I can’t articulate that to you or myself right now. But knowing what it’s not can be directional. Along with the pull for it to evolve. I can lean in and listen to that voice. Take a step and see where it leads. It’s not going to be one thing and then it’s done or complete. Cause I don’t feel like that state exists. But progress can’t be made without making steps forward.

I say all that and I’m frozen. Stuck in place. Not sure what’s the next step or what to do or which direction to head. So perhaps I’ll step to the side of the trail, sit down and enjoy the surroundings while I keep my eyes and ears open and trust the steps will appear when they’re ready. At least that’s my hopeful vision in this moment.
