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.
