Timing

 To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted… –Ecclesiastes

When we moved into our new home in May I started a vegetable garden, but I was already planting late in the season.  I suppose I considered myself some sort of master of nature, because I planted seeds that were out of season…sure I could nurture them into fruitfulness.  No master of nature am I.  It was amazing to watch, when I did honor the heat and the timing, how quickly those plants sprang to life.  Things flourish in their time.  Pay attention and you may be rewarded.

Farm to Market

The work that goes into growing and preparing the food we eat deserves our mindful eating.
