At the start of a new year it's natural to think of new beginnings, but today I've been thinking about the harvest, coming to fruition as I dug up my baby potatoes. Little Man washed them excitedly and we had them for our tea and they were indeed very yummy. (Homegrown always does taste better).
But, I planted 4 seed potaoes and yielded about 12 new ones - 3 potatoes per seed. I could have improved my harvest considerably if I'd tended to them more carefully and watered them more - and it's the same with your dreams and your creativity - keep tending them with inspiration and practise and you'll yield more. A little is good, but put in more care and effort and love and the yield will be magnificent - that's going to be my mantra for 2013! :)
