What do you do with monstrous zucchini? You know the ones I’m talking about. The dark green beasts that evaded notice until you tripped over them.

My youngest son brought me two such presents from Grandma’s garden. He lugged them home and hoisted them onto the countertop … where they sat for several more days as I filtered through all of the possibilities. Bottom line. We shredded them, packaged them into two-cup portions, and froze the bounty. Enough to make 18 loaves of zucchini bread.

But, long before the harvest, came months of work. Time spent preparing the soil, planting, watering, weeding, and waiting for things to grow.

The same can be said for my writing life including the past two years of blogging about a variety of topics … and discovering the occasional blossom that grew into something more. Like 18 related blogs on gardening topics with a devotional feel.

garden-devo-book-coverThe ideas in question sat around on the counter of my mind for several weeks this summer as I mulled over the possibilities. With a bit of processing and repackaging, I’m pleased to announce the publication of my latest ebook.

Life is like a garden. Complete with seasons of dormancy and growth, preparation and harvest. A winter, spring, summer, and fall of the soul. Devotions from the Garden: Inspiration for Life is available now for $.99 in Kindle and other ebook formats. It is also available in a print version through CreateSpace or Amazon.

What about you? What do you do with monstrous zucchini? Has something surprising ever grown in the garden of your life?
