Sharing the Love
One of the things about my garden that I'm excited about is the opportunity to share the bounty once it arrives. I dream about taking my neighbor some zucchini or a handful of radishes. I can't wait to have friends over while my husband grills corn that we picked only minutes before. I want us to be able to take a basketful of tomatoes to work for everyone.
At this point in my garden, everything is growing, but I'm still some time out before I'll be able to harvest anything. But I got to "share the love" today regardless. Since the garden is a labor of love, what better thing can you do but share it.
I was at church this morning (my husband was on duty) and I got to talking with another young couple who came for the first time. And guess what? She's been working on her first garden. We started talking about herbs and I told her how I'd taken some fresh sage right out of my flower beds and put it in some spaghetti the night before. She said that she'd been wanting to plant some sage.
Ah yes, ding ding ding! I have more sage than I needed. So I went right home, dug some that had escaped, put it in a pot, and I got to share :) She got some sage and we both got a new friend.
Such is the reward for sharing the love.
