It is the 4th day in the month of December in central Ohio and would you believe I picked fresh lettuce, beets and onions from my garden? I have been covering them each night; protecting them from the freezing temperatures. The new growth of lettuces came up from seed, the beets are from my spring planting and were the small ones left in the ground. The onions are from a late second planting. Picking this bounty brought about a pure and simple happiness to my Sunday afternoon… 

To watch the corn grow, or the blossoms set; to draw hard breath over the ploughshare or spade; to read, to think, to love, to pray, are the things that make men happy.
