lettuce think spring!

lettuce entertain you

i came home for fifteen minutes before running back out to the basketball game and i planted a flat of lettuce and a flat of swisschard. it was a pure will to garden smattering of moments. we are due for rain this weekend and i am due for a sitdown. sometimes, i am scared to stop because i don't know if i can start back up.

what a miracle of hope in the simple act of planting, the right to patience, the celebration of a new season and the simplicity of a shovel.

Lovely picture, and inspiring. It's too early to plant anything in my part of the country, but it won't be too long. I can't wait till spring! It must be wonderful to live where it's always warm.

Well said, Dawn!

I'm going to be planting some lettuce next weekend, and my "miracle of hope" is that the bunnies don't see it!
