Seedlings Arise

After the Seeds are planted, Gardeners walk carefully about the Garden. Even the smallest of changes is noted. Tiny miracles are at work beneath the soil. We cannot see them. But we believe.

On June 8, another moment of awe arrives as the 1st Horticulture Bean seedlings emerge from the moist Earth. Tiny Beet seedlings also make Their presence known.

Such moments present the Humans with how very little we know and how very little we can do. Sure, we can plant Seeds. We can also build trellises to support their growth. We can weed and hoe. Such little actions pale against the Big Drama. We are set in a Great Mystery which surrounds us, nourishes us, uplifts us.

Life is good.
