The first day of summer began as any other warm June day until I went into the garden and saw two red berries on our raspberry bush. Mother Nature gave us two sweet little gifts for the beginning of summer. I spent a few hours outside tending to the various plants and also noticed that our strawberries and blackberries aren’t far behind! I can’t wait to see the next round of produce this season. We have squash, cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes and beans coming up very soon! It’s beautiful to see something that you planted months ago grow into a provider of nutrition for many weeks to a lot of hungry people. What we have in this garden is more than a few plants, but we have a home to many organisms. Our garden is full of microclimates that are delicately balanced within the biosphere. Our human society is just one of thousands of these ecosystems that live with in each-other. In order for us to survive we depend on other ecosystems go support us and vise versa.
The environment has billions of interwoven parts that are all so important that if one event happened to break a cycle the whole ecosystem could collapse. this goes for our society as well. This is why it is important to be eco-friendly and caring to our planet. We depend on it’s survival as much as it depends on us.
