Out of season

“So…you’re growing tomatoes.”


“And zucchini.”


“And basil and oregano. And peppers.”


“You know these are all summer crops, right?”


“And you’re growing them organically, with no pesticides, no boosters, no chemical fertilizers.”


“Sorry, but I just don’t think it’s going to work. Seems to me to be a waste of time.”

“Well, maybe it won’t work. Maybe nothing will germinate. Maybe nothing will take root, and I’ll be left with no homegrown vegetables of these sorts in the dead of winter, and no herbs to dry and store. But if it doesn’t work, it won’t be because I didn’t make the effort.”
