Garden Picture

I lose track of time when I'm in the garden. Tilling, hoeing, pulling weeds, mulching and observing are all zen-like tasks. I don't get in a hurry nor do I linger too long. I just am.
I know the old saying goes "a watched pot never boils, but I can almost see our garden grow. We walk out every morning with steaming cups of coffee and silently take stock and each evening as the sun sets in the west, we have another look.
My cousin Janet from Florida askied why I haven't posted photos of the garden yet, so I shot a picture this evening when we got back from the book signing. It's still a little early to get a feel for how well it's doing. Pictures don't do it justice.
Anyhow, here goes. Y'all have a happy Friday.

    Hi Rick! I always love reading your posts. This is only the second garden that me and my husband have enjoyed. I would have never thought that we would have so much fun with rows of tomatoes, squash, and corn. We just have a small lot that we work but its full of great things. I have two sons 15 and 10 years old. The fun is a loss to them, they simply cant fathom why we enjoy hard work as a hobby.
    Thanks for all your wonderful insights.

    Sincerely, Brandi Davenport
