It has been a full season of abundance
So much goodness, so very grateful….. but I must admit, I was happy to see old Jack frost come. I know I shouldn’t really admit it, but I smiled deeply the morning I saw the tomatoes curling in from cold and snuggled back into bed to savor the shift that had finally come. You see, all the abundance equals a lot of work and when you do most of it yourself you know how much stamina and discipline it takes to stay home and chop and can and freeze in what feels like every free moment of September when it feel like the whole world is festinating without you!
And we are not left barren and bare post frost, oh no in fact the fall garden looks quite perky due to a big mid summer bed turning push by the old hubby and some serious seeding on my part!! And now the fresh food gives us promise of vitamins for many moons ahead, which turns out I will need. Though I head into this season of senescence, and the work of the outer world may feel like it is pairing down, the internal work is just beginning….
May this seasons abundance nourish us all well into the next season ahead!
