A cool thing about living in California is that we get 4 harvests in a year...new kinds of produce every season. This year, we decided to try a Fall time garden so we're growing lettuce, radishes, broccoli (which I've heard is impossible), onions and carrots (that take a really long time).
Our pastor spoke this past Sunday on seeds. "Seeds are like the unseen life of God." They sprout and grow to provide nutrition, beauty, fresh air. Some even grow to cast refreshing shade and provide a place of refuge for birds and other creatures. It's a mystery as to how the soil and water activate that seed and tell it to sprout but it does and it is good.
We had to thin out the lettuce a bit as we had gotten a little seed happy when we sowed them. But that didn't stop us from having a mini early harvest salad with the baby greens...
