There is a lot of wisdom in that.
Its a gardeners lot, we never know whats around the corner weather wise and early frosts are a killer!
Surely the truth.

I plant in faith knowing that it is a gamble, but by planting a wide variety of plants I have always got a harvest of something. In the end, the rewards far outstrip the failures.
