The Garden VI: Picking

“The ones who live with fists clenched, holding tight to their shiny things, seem to have never enough. Those who live with their hands wide open, seem to have readied hands steady full.”

Homestead Chronicles: the Garden I

It is such a treasure that the Creator Himself gives us the gift of growing, and when you pick your firstfruit, you will feel like the richest man on earth, like God Himself is smiling on you. I can not describe it, but it makes all the hours of sweat and mosquito bites and back-aching work, worth it. It drives all the growers to plant again year after year.
