My youngest graduates in June and turns 18 a mere 16 days later. I have been thinking a lot lately about not having kids anymore, only adults. I remember during some of their teenage years longing for this moment, yet now that it is nearly upon me I am feeling some sadness.
The SuperGarden is coming along nicely. At least the parts I have planted. I really need to get the rest in the ground. But the seedlings are doing well.
And the corn has come up. There was quite a bit of excitement when these were spotted. I may have been jumping up and down for joy or some such nonsense.
Although I can’t figure out why only the front rows are coming up and not the back.
My garden, my new child
I nurture you like a babe
Tender caring, gentle feedings
Tucked in warm and tight at night
I share with you my joy of sun
And dampen you with delight
I celebrate your growth with glee
Looking forward with anticipation to what you shall become
