I thought you might like to see what’s been keeping me busy.
This is our garden.
The items under the blue tarp are a couple of my favorite tools. My dad passed down to me his old tiller and row-buster. He’s had them for about 30 years. I remember watching him use them in his gardens. He kept two very large gardens which he used to grow vegetables for his parents’ produce store. Of course, we ate the food he produced, too, but I remember going to my grandparents’ store with our turnip greens. My grandmother always let me pick out some candy, which infuriated my mother. So, she’d let me get a bottle of coke, too.
We’re growing squash and zucchini
peas and beans
That’s a watermelon mound to the left.
I didn’t photograph the red potatoes, carrots or okra.
I’ve got room for about 10 more rows.
I’m thinking about cantaloupe, lettuce, onions, and more potatoes and carrots.
We’ve also planted a few things in planters.
Basil, Oregano and Parsley (not pictured)
The best place to seek God is in a garden. You can dig for him there.
~George Bernard Shaw
While tilling and digging, my mind has turned over and over the many scriptures related to soil, sowing, reaping, weeding and pruning. The Lord has used the physical labor to remind me of important spiritual truths. This work has been good for my soul.
