gourds

And just when it seems like summer, fall is in the air and it is time to plant the winter garden! Gourds and butternut  squashes are on the vines, leeks are almost ready, tomatoes are starting to give their harvest, and we are out there planting broccoli, chards, lettuces and cauliflower seedlings. Even our little garden seems to take so much time, I am in awe of farmers who are making their livings at it.

I am just learning about the cycles of plants. Some seem to grow year round, some are done before you know it and others take a long time and you keep watching them, waiting. You can not hesitate or put it off if something ripens. Working with plants keeps you grounded, literally. It’s my second summer gardening and I know more this year. And along with that comes an understanding of how much more there is to know!
