Rocks Can Bring Us Together


One of the difficulties we have been facing as a Peace Corps couple is finding projects we can do together. Now we have. It’s rocks. No not diamonds, albeit I am sure, they would work. It’s lava rocks in our large garden.

We have started to clear a 1/4-acre of lava rocks, mostly several carats in size, to make beds for vegetables. We dig them out together. Mary usually lies in the dirt, sieving the soil between her fingers. I use the pick. We use the rocks to make mud less pathways around the compound. What better way to bring you and your spouse, or whomever, closer to you and share trying to clean the black soil from your bodies at the end of he day?
