Spinach growing

My spinach is growing well this year. No doubt they will be harvested and eaten in one meal. Perhaps I'll make spinach gnocchi’s or  a nice spinach gratin. I have watched them grow for 40 days and will take 40 minutes to harvest and cook them. Finally, I will eat them in 4 minutes. 

Is it worth all the work? It depends. The calories expended in preparing the soil, planting the seed, watering and weeding is greater than the calories in these leafy heads.

What is worth the endeavor is to experience life unfolding. And to see myself connected to the whole.
