#512: Nantucket greenhouse

It’s winter, 
not pretty, snowy winter
but windy, gray, drizzly winter.
This is when I focus in on God’s renewing work
all around.
so much looks lifeless and empty–
but it isn’t.
The ground may have been snow-covered
in February,
but there’s growth in the greenhouse.
Tiny onions 

Bigger ones planted February 18th.

Mesclun lettuces,
these are replanted all winter,
one 3’x6′ tray for harvesting, another for growing. 

Outside it looks like this.
No boats for three days, no planes for two.

But the tulips don’t know that.
