Talking Re: The secret life of plants

Here we are in the middle of March, and it has been absolutely beautiful these last few weeks where I reside.
In fact, the weather has been so nice that I was able to get a jump start on this years garden. This will be my second go at gardening, and this time I even half know what I am doing.

I can't wait tell its ready! Yum I miss garden food so much. Who else is planting a garden this year?

Here are some pictures so far. Still a month off at least before I can plant it, but I've been starting all sorts of veggy plants already, and I'll just transplant when the soil is warm enough outside. Last year I never started my garden until the end of may, so I have a few months head start, and I'm pretty excited as already many of my plants are starting to bud...

This is the back garden, its going to by my juicing garden and personal garden mainly, some before and after pics:

Before:

After

And then this is the seed of life, but a little hard to make out in
the photo because of its size:


This next garden is in the same area as the first one. This one I make as a
giant pentagram.
Before:

After:




Here is another garden in the works, this one is right by the back
porch of the house.
Before:

After:


And here is a way to make organic starter pots incase you are trying
to cut plastics from your food chain.


And here is a panoramic shot of the full acreage, I'm hoping to get at least 6 acres or about 1/4 of it growing by the end of this year. All of it will be done using circles and stars, as well as other sacred geometric shapes.

Plants are intelligent forms of life who are capable of intention, preference, and a will to survive, thrive and interact. Scientific research indicates that plants communicate with insects, animals, human beings and other plants in order to keep themselves alive and safe. Evidence also reveals that plants are telling us how to achieve health and wholeness for humanity and the earth herself.

Plants Are Just Like People

In the book, "The Secret Life of Plants," authors Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird describe how plants "talk to" people and what plants "talk" about. Staying alive and safe tops the list.

To protect themselves, plants have developed highly adaptive and strategic ways for living. According to the authors, "Plants seem to know which ants will steal their nectar, closing when these ants are about, opening only when there is enough dew on their stems to keep the ants from climbing. The more sophisticated acacia plant actually enlists the protective services of certain ants which it rewards with nectar in return for the ants' protection against other insects and herbivorous mammals," thus serving the same function as friends and allies do in the animal and human realms. Some vegetation develop a bitter taste, some ooze gummy secretions, while others grow thorns to defend themselves.

Prickles for the Pussy

Once plants feel safe, however, they may drop their need for defense. In one study, a scientist wanted to determine if cacti grow needles primarily for the purpose of keeping themselves from harm. Safely housed in a greenhouse, the scientist talked to numerous cacti assuring them that they were protected and that he cared about them. He encouraged the plants to feel even more secure by playing soothing music in the greenhouse. Within several months the cacti dropped all their spikes. The offspring of these bare cacti were born without needles. Defenseless within this nurturing environment, the mature and new-born cacti prospered. After a period of a year of being without their protective quills, the cacti suddenly began re-growing their bristles and new baby sprouts were born with needles again. After some investigation, it was discovered that a house cat had found its way into the greenhouse. Suspecting that the cat may be the source of the perceived threat to the cacti causing the reemergence of their means of protection, the scientist blocked the cat's way of entry. Once the cacti sensed they were once again safe, all of the cacti dropped their prickly means of defense.

Dear Mudra, thanks so much for your tip on The Secret Life of Plants and beautiful flowerpictures, they're so brilliant! I love the world of plants and here's a title of a book that maybe interests you: Healing the Earth by Marko Pagacnik.
It's about working with the elementals in nature. Also Rudolf Steiner, the Austrian visionary and teacher talks about the life of plants, he found in Goethe a like minded approach towards the consciousness of plants and the energies of nature. But even without these studies, the language of flowers is universal and aims at our hearts and souls, I find. Thank you for placing this thread, Mudra!
