Waiting to Prune

I will prune my vines for the first time this year.  The last few leaves are clinging.  Once they fall, I will prune vigorously both of the vines.  For now, I'm enjoying resting.  We've had several challenges with the family this fall.  I haven't had the emotional energy to do more than wait for the next cycle.

The two younger children were begging to plant carrots this afternoon.  I took the opportunity to explain to them the seasons of the year.  I taught them about planting seasons versus dormant seasons.  Even though the garden isn't producing vegetables, it is producing educational opportunities for my children.  And, for that, I'm thankful.
