Nurturing


The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Isaiah 58:11


We had a beautiful day....the weather was a lovely 80 degrees and the soil was wet from last nights rain. We took advantage of this pleasantness and worked in the garden, preparing it for the seedlings that are growing stronger each day.


Ava sinking her little chunky hands into the damp soil next to me as we pull out the weeds and grass. Smiling up at me as we worked side by side.


I am blessed!

You certainly are!

I'm interested to know what all you are doing with your produce from the garden. Are you canning, freezing, or eating up as you get it??? Just wondering. Your garden seems really big.

Blessings,

Holly C.

Holly, we are freezing what we dont eat. I had alot of Okra and squash and zuchinni and onions and sweet peppers....all of the excess of those were frozen.

The beans are eaten fresh or aloud to dry then stored. My tomatoes did not do so well this year, although I have spoken with some other gardeners who claim the same thing, so it must have been an off season.

Cantalope was eaten on a daily basis and oh, it was good!! The butternut squash will be eaten up before it goes bad.

The garden right now looks bare as we pulled out most of the summer crop and are preparing the rows for new plants, but what a job that is ;-)

Good point.

Oh that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Duet 5:29
