We had a very long spring here in Washington, DC. For those of us who garden that means a strong season for lettuce, spinach, and other plants that grow in the early spring. Above you see not just my garden, but a salad I made and ate yesterday with the greenery it provided.

Today I planted little tomato and jalapeno sprouts because they will thrive in the hot summer that’s coming. To everything, there is a season.

I like to perpetually think about the next six months. I aim to give it good consideration every three months. That keeps my eye on the rolling horizon. But, of course, not everything will go according to plan. There will be inevitable opportunities and challenges that arise from circumstances unforeseen. Nonetheless, planning makes it possible to harvest.


“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”
