I love these quiet last of winder nights when everything is about to blossom forth. I can see the ground absorbing all of the nutrients seeping into the ground that will feed all the vegetables that I'm planting soon. I can't wait to get my hands on the rake and prepare the ground. Last year I was a beginner in the garden, but not this year. I've learned and I am going to have the largest crop of tomatoes ever. I'll be selling at the end of the driveway. I will be famous for vegetable. Peas, beans, tomatoes, lettuce, zuchini....onions...and who knows what else? I'm ready now. simply ready for the return of the summer, the small animals that inhabit my yard, and who remind me that life is fragile, and that I need to protect it at all costs.
