Late Harvest

Late harvests include potatoes, garlic, shallots, leeks, cabbages, celery, eggplants, peppers and onions.

Life is an onion - you peel it year by year and sometimes cry.
― Carl Sandburg,  

Onion, Fields, Field, Onion Field, Leek
I think we are the late harvest: we are more onion than early peas.  We flavor each day with each new layer.  And not content to remain under dark soil, we push our way upward, to breathe crisp new air.

And with time, possibilities are revealed, one layer at a time. Storehouses of potential.
Even today.

Said the onion:  You don't know how much more flavor you can add until you peel back.

    1. Thank you, Janive, I once read people who plant gardens believe in tomorrow. I think the same is true for those of us who raise children. We believe in the hope for tomorrow they represent. You might like this post about raising children. Sunflower Seeds
