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!
In its own way, frost may be one of the most beautiful things to happen in your garden all year . . . Don’t miss it. Like all true beauty, it is fleeting. It will grace your garden for but a short while this morning. . . . For this moment, embrace frost as the beautiful gift that it is.
