Had I Known
Garden Reports and Rejoicing – January 9
Had I known that this would be such a mild winter, and that we’d still have edible arugula in the vegetable garden, I would have planted more lettuce, kale, and broccoli in September.
Had I known…we can all finish that sentence with any number of thoughts about being smarter, richer, and more productive. Not to mention a better person.
Had I known leads only leads to regrets, which is to say that it directs us to nowhere. Had I known is a waste of time. Better to go outside and harvest the arugula that I have and be grateful for it.
