We’re wired for hope. I love that we’re made to hope. My hope-hungry heart finds itself wandering to the garden every morning. I love growing things from seed because it’s such a hope-drenched process. I hope they will germinate. I hope they will grow. I hope they will bear fruit. I hope they will ripen.
Tending plants helps cultivate a hopeful heart. Here are some garden updates for you!
Here are the tomatoes grown from last year’s seeds and a few super-sweet cherry tomatoes that I feared would never grow.
The ground cherry is such a lovely and extraordinary plant! Soon, the Chinese lantern-like husks will fall to the ground and we can feast on the fruit inside.
So I wander the garden as an exercise in hope.
