He Won’t Brag, So I Will
Just one head of lettuce provides salad for twelve. Can your lettuce do that?
My husband would tell you that he had nothing to do with it. Someone else sowed the seeds; he just stuck the seedlings in the ground. God provided the rain. Yeah, but who was up there weeding?
Shaded by the broccoli, the lettuce isn't bitter, even though it's pretty nigh bolted.
All that cool and rainy weather has been good for something: great lettuce!
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.
