Maybe This Year

I am always most optimistic about the vegetable garden immediately after planting. This year, I think, the tomatoes, cucumbers, summer squash, zucchini, basil, red leaf lettuce, buttercrunch lettuce, mesclun, beets, and pumpkins will be disease- and pest-free, plentiful, and photogenic. Gardening is an act of faith, but thank god I don’t have to live on the results.

  1. How unique to see a post with "faith" and "god" (noting the small 'g') in the same sentence! Must be the recent exposure to all those saints and holy places!
