getting naked

This has been THE week~
THE week for us when most of our crops have "finished", the chill is in the air, the mornings are crisp, and the hubby decides to winterize the deck furniture (attic bound!) and "downsize" the garden and prepare it for rest.

This year....
this time....
my heart strings played a somber tune....
it felt like I still wanted more.
it felt painful to see the plants uprooted~
like I didnt want them to be finished yet.
I wasnt ready to let go.

but, I also felt grateful.... for the provisions that they did give us.
and yes, it is time.
but goodbye always hurts.
so goodbye sweet crop.
You were good to us.
you gave me, more than I gave you...
and I was fed.
My family was fed.
thank you.

  1. I feel the same way...I hate to rip out these plants who still have tiny tomatoes on them...just a FEW MORE SUNNY DAYS!
