The Fall Garden

Broccoli is blooming in the vegetable garden. Now that the summer garden has been pulled out (tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, and summer squash), i can actually see the fall garden--broccoli, kale, carrots, Brussels sprouts, and chard.

When we retire from the summer of our busy lives, we can see the fruits of our labors more clearly. We can enjoy the harvest of grandchildren or volunteer jobs or our spiritual practice. Now we have time for the activities that gladden our hearts.

Let's eat lots of cancer-preventing broccoli and cholesterol-lowering kale. The fall garden is so much more relaxing than the summer garden.
