Last year I published a post on the power of encouragement. My parents nurtured and fed my nascent love of gardening, turning me into the garden teacher and writer that I am today.
Last week at the Farmer’s Market, I had the gift come back to me in a wonderful way.
As I was working my plant booth at the 326 Community Market, I looked up to see two young ladies walking my way with two pots that were overflowing with happy plants.
You know, I didn’t sell very many plants on Thursday – but this was better than any sales I could have made. I left feeling like a million bucks. A little gardening encouragement goes a long way.
I may have encouraged these young gardeners, but they encouraged me much more than I can ever say. The fact that they brought their plants back to show me the progress… priceless.
Good work, ladies. Keep on growing.
