This is the time of year when your labors in the garden kick in a return that will reward your spirit and nourish your body. This is it! The payoff. You made it. Congratulations. Who doesn’t experience sheer joy in searching for a container to hold the goodies that are waiting for you? Every second counts. I don’t know what’s more exciting; seeing the fruits of your labor as you approach your garden spot with their bright colors or the discovery that is made by pulling back an unassuming vine. Whatever the case is, this glee is what makes you do it all over again next spring. Enjoy your bounty. You earned it.
