Satisfaction

veggiesWe got a few more things done in the greenhouse garden today. My job, since I am an expert with the spade shovel, was to dig the carrots and beets, line them up on the lawn, and spray them on both sides with the garden hose (for some reason, these pesky vegetables get dirt all over themselves!)

I found myself humming the Rolling Stones’ song, “Satisfaction” while I was working. I found myself smiling at the lyrics, which talk about a poor fellow who tries and tries, but he just can’t get no satisfaction. “You must not be a gardener,” I said to him. I find it hard to imagine anything as satisfying as these lovely vegetables all lined up on the lawn, each getting their bath, and showing their beautiful colors.
