Grow Write Guild: Endings and Transitions

Friday, October 11, 2013

Sunrise or sunset?  It all depends on your perspective.
We have yet to suffer a killing frost this fall.  Some of the basil is a bit brown on the edges but the tomatoes are still growing away.  While the death of all the garden annuals is a bit depressing, I am excited for new things next year.  Sometimes the frost is a bit of relief when I just can't imagine what I will do with anymore tomato sauce and I have enough jalapeno peppers to feed a stadium. 

I am very grateful for the long growing season that gives me the ability to grow so much good food, but I enjoy the break of winter as well.  I have been thinking about how taking a break is healthy for almost any aspect of life.  There is something to be said about the renewed perspective and energy it can bring.  It is easy to fall into a routine and take things for granted so I am thankful for the winter transition which enables me to get re-energized and excited for gardening in the spring.
