    Winter wheat grows  along the road from either approach to the 163-year-old Abbey of Gethsemani. Along the drive south from New Haven Road, a grove of pines huddles against the nearby hills, so thick their trunks are tinted blue. The hour for daily Vespers, the monks’ evening prayer, is nearly here.
