Summers end the garden is thriving now, but soon will give way to wilting and a final rest. I will be sad to see it end. Summer offered challenges this year with continued rain, difficulty in prediction of temperature and sunshine. Because of these things, the Garden required some extra attention. It took my will along with God’s provision to see it prosper. I picked but not in plenty, Acorn squash, tomatoes, spinach, okra, watermelon and more. I also began and cultivated a culinary garden, with various herbs for cooking. I experience prospering scents of basil, rosemary, curry, lavender and parsley as spice for food and aroma for relaxation.
