Just received some photos from home, of our wonderful garden. My favorites are of the produce we’ve gotten from our plants – there’s noting quite like garden fresh produce! They harvested most of the onions, and boy are they big! Mom said that a tomato the size of a tennis-ball (approx.) fell off the vine while still green. They took it inside, and it’s ripened up nicely. (See the photo below with the peaches in the window sill.) Our little fig tree – yes, the same one that we transplanted and hoped wouldn’t die – is growing nicely, and even has some little figs on it. God has indeed blessed our garden greatly, especially with plenty of rain of late! Rejoicing in the abundance of nature and the God of nature!
Working in the garden is sort of like therapy. There’s just something about it that’s good for your body, mind and soul. Maybe it’s the sunshine, or working the rich, black soil. Or maybe it’s just being out in the fresh air, and interacting with God’s beautiful creation. I don’t know, but I love doing it!
Yesterday, my sister Abby and I worked on getting some more things started in the garden. We planted (all in seed form) beans, radishes, okra, and cantaloupe. I planted four squash seedlings that I started about a week ago. I’m just hoping and praying all the seeds I planted will spring up and grow big, strong and healthy! Oh, we also planted eight of the raspberry plants, and have to expand the bed to plant the rest of them. We’re going to add some string or rope to the clothes line poles and grow the vines up on them. And, a couple days ago Mom and Dad transplanted our fig tree from it’s pot to the ground. So, we have quite a garden going here in the bustling suburbs of Dallas, Texas!

Friday was a lovely day here in North Texas, and with Joel and Abby being off from work, we (actually, they did most of the work!) got all of our plants that we recently purchased in pots. We had several pots just lying around, so we had plenty of them, plus we decided to try … Continue reading
