Still Focused on the Garden
In the last couple of days I’ve had some friends inquire about my garden. So today I will give you my progress reports with photos.
The Vegetable Garden:
On Sunday as I walked through the garden I counted the rows that have popped up with small green plants. There were 13 on the west side of the path and 12 on the east side.
Here’s a view of the east side of the garden looking past a very tall weed that’s blooming merrily. (12 rows are up on this side).
Here’s a view of the west side overlooking the chives. (13 rows are up on that side).
While I was having breakfast this morning I had a call from Anna who asked about my garden, so while I was chewing my last mouthful I decided to take a quick walk down and back the path through the garden. I came up with a total of 26 rows showing nicely! (But I’ve forgotten how many for each side – mind you, the west side is longer).
Some marvel at why I would grow such a big garden. You see, by myself, there is no way I can eat all the produce that comes from my garden, but I do it out of habit; it’s a family tradition, and because I love to give away the produce. If you come to visit me this summer I will load you down with whatever is ripe and ready at that time!
You may remember that Patience helped me sow more flowers week before last. I’ve been meaning to get the other nooks and corners seeded
too, but we’ve had a week or more of very strong winds! Too fierce to work with seeds outside. And rains too – which is fine for the garden. I did get some weeding down last night on the east side of the path up to my front door. But by the time I’d pulled all those weeds I was too weary to stand up straight. So I didn’t get any flowers sown there.
The day looks sunny and calm this morning, but the forecast is for rains this afternoon and for the next three days. So right now I’m thinking, “If I can get this RoseBouquet done and published quickly this morning I may get those flowers sown before lunch and any rains yet!”
It’s almost like a game of tag or Hide n’ Seek with the weather. But I’m always grateful for each day when the Lord take the garden watering shift.
