Cultivate and Produce Your Project

CULTIVATE and PRODUCE YOUR PROJECT

 

Cultivate and Produce Your Project 1

Project ready.

Cultivate and produce your project, roll up your sleeves, don your garden gloves and hat, gather your tools. It’s time to cultivate and produce your project. 


Sometimes it’s difficult to launch, to leap into the garden and plow, enrich the soil, and plant your project. The critical step: moving.

Nurturing the project along.

Begin with cultivation: tilling, dreaming, imagining, and creating. You can enrich the soil through planning, analyzing, outlining, drafting, and growing your project into fruition.

Moving your project forward builds momentum with resulting progress, incrementally, like boulders in an avalanche thundering downhill.  Your project is sprouting and thriving and you are proud viewing your effort. As you continue to tend to your established project, you watch it expand with a strong root system and foundation to support the next level of growth—fruition.

Project success!

Success! It’s harvest season. Your project matured into a fully-grown dream with achievement. Flourish in the glow of your cultivated actualization. Don’t glow too long, there are additional seed projects waiting for their garden to thrive and actualize.

Thoughtful observation.

“Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work.” –William Arthur Ward (1921-1994); Author, Educator, and Motivational Speaker.

Recently, my nephew Sean and I planted a Three Sisters GardenIt’s an ancient and brilliant companion farming method developed by Native Americans.

The process: First we enriched the soil with organic amendments and organic IMG_2607fertilizer then dampened the soil. After developing a flat-topped circular mound, we planted corn seeds in a circle on the top of the mound.

Once the seedlings began to grow, we planted pole beans around the corn.

Following their growth, we planted melons (pumpkins or squash) around the sides of the mounds. We watered the seedlings to keep them moist. Now, our garden is sprouting and on its way.

This companion planting method is steeped in Native American rituals and emphasizes environmental harmony in nature.

The corn (oldest sister) supports the pole beans (nurturing sister), which processes nitrogen into the soil while holding the sisters together, and the melons or squash (youngest sister) provides protection and cover for the roots, weeds, pests, shade and mulch for the other plants.

IMG_2614The Three Sisters Garden is a family unit that enriches, supports and protects one another from the elements and provides an abundant harvest. Perhaps you might try planting a Three Sisters Garden too. It’s easy, you can do it!
