As the peak growing season is starting to wane (although, frankly my tomatoes are just starting to come into their own) I found some seeds on clearance at Walgreens yesterday (when I was getting my string cheese). Some of them were things that will grow well in the fall here, like peas and carrots. So, we bought them and planted them this morning.
I was thinking how like life a garden is. You have to tend, water, keep re-planting just to sustain it. It’s that way with kids, and sharing the gospel, your marriage, a positive outlook on life.
Of course, you could do all that and a nasty squirrel comes in and steals your produce. BTW, we are one less cantaloupe thanks to them. I haven’t seen them for a while actually – and I know the cantaloupe wasn’t near ripe. Perhaps they got a nasty surprise from stealing from us.
But I digress.
I hope we get some produce well into the fall months through this. Wish us luck!
