Patience is difficult.  Sometimes life is comprised of a chain of waiting periods.

It’s not a bad thing.  On the contrary it builds anticipation and excitement.  It means that just around the corner your hopes may all be realized and when they are they seem that much sweeter.

Because you waited.

For the seeds to sprout.


For the sprouts to grow.


For the plant to fruit.


For the fruit to ripen.


Each step has its own reward.  Its own realization of the dream.  Its own harvest from the seed.


Not just the seed planted in the ground, but the seed planted in the gardener.

    Hey Keith, I had to chuckle at your subject for this blog post. I planted potatoes some three weeks ago. The weather turned cold and the soil temperature dipped down to 45 degrees. Just a few days ago I kept wondering why the potatoes weren’t up yet and finally broke down and dug one up to see what was going on under all that soil. Teeny tiny little sprouts were just starting to grow. Now today amid rain soaked soil from the rains this morning, I see potato vines coming up through the mulch. Patience is the key word and a virtue for gardeners that’s for sure. I’ll give it another couple weeks and the next layer of potatoes will be planted.

    Have a great garden patience day.
