Quote of the Day: Marilynne Robinson

April 26th, 2015

“Sometimes I have loved the peacefulness of an ordinary Sunday. It is like standing in a newly planted garden after a warm rain. You can feel the silent and invisible life. All it needs from you is that you take care not to trample on it.”

Marilynne Robinson in Gilead

I often watch the weather and plant my seeds right before it’s supposed to rain. I like that they get watered in right away and I always hope it speeds germination. This is what I’m feeling this week, the peaceful patience of waiting for seeds to germinate and grow. The radishes I planted last week are just springing forth, very soon I will start to see spinach, arugula, cilantro, onions, beets, and a few other seedling emerging from the soil.

What seeds have you planted this week?
