There’s nothing that makes a gardening mother happier than to see her offspring sport their own green thumbs. In addition to Talitha’s big vegetable garden, Cadie, Collin, Evan, Justin, and Owen all have smaller patches of ground they are tending, and Caleb (age 3) has a container garden. My 21 year old son Rundy has several agricultural projects going. He tends to like to grow practical things, like grapes and apple trees. He also plants some vegetables, the ones he can’t live without, I suppose. But (and here’s where the bragging comes in) he not only grows these things, but he writes about them in a way I think you’ll find enjoyable. And if you do, let him know, and tell him his mother sent you. Update: I decided to make Rundy a contributor and copy his relevant blog entries to this blog. This is getting to be quite the family affair.
If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
