Full Circle on the City Farm

It's amazing to see that our peas on St. Patrick's Day grew from teeny little sprouts,

Into towering plants,

Exploded in blossoms out the top,

Fell over under their own weight,

Provided us with a few days of snacking plus substantial finale harvest,

And have now been pulled from the garden and piled in the compost heap.  It's the circle of life.  It's life and death. Life and death are all around us and it's good for our children to recognize it.  We honor and respect the deaths that sustain our lives.
