JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 240 :: letting go to grow

3 Sep
It’s that time of year. The garden is toppling over with bounty. And today we pulled out this bliss: a cucumber bigger than a hammer.

At first we didn’t see it. Because it was growing on the OTHER side of the fence. But once it came into view it was hard to miss.

Of course we picked tomatoes and peppers and filled our bowls with other vegetables too, but I haven’t been able to get that cucumber out of my mind.

That big, huge, overgrown, amazing cucumber keeps whispering to me. It’s a reminder really. Sometimes the most powerful way to grow is to plant a seed, water it, let the sun shine where it may and then let go, stop watching and forget about it.

Let it do what it wants to do.
(No matter what side of the fence it wants to grow.)
Because sometimes we have to let go to grow.

More tomorrow.
