Fallow Period 🌾



|Fal"low| n.
To plow, harrow, and break up, as land, without seeding, for the purpose of destroying weeds and insects, and rendering it mellow; as, it is profitable to fallow cold, strong, clayey land. ——

The fallow period has ended.

The soil’s watered and tilled, roots growing, surface placid.

It’s coming, but don’t believe it.

“Have faith,” they say.

The garden holds its breath, waiting for what feels like it’ll never come.

It happens slowly, then all at once.
