Now is the time to plant the fall garden: broccoli, chard, kale, bok choy, and lettuces prefer cool weather. As the hot season crops, such as cucumbers and tomatoes, peppers and eggplants, begin to look piqued when they catch the first whiffs of chill in the air, the coo weather vegetables begin to flex their muscles.

Now in the height of your own summer of strength and health, now is the time to plant the crop that will reward you when you begin to feel a bit piqued in the fall of your life.

What will you do when the body becomes as spotted as an old tomato plant? When your bones begin to look as hole-y as slug-chewed greens? The material world, including our bodies, ages and decays.

Plant your spiritual practice now so that you can begin to reap the fruits of the spiritual life.
