In the Garden.

Today, we planted a garden!  We are worn out, and reminded of all the muscles we don’t normally use, but the seeds are in the ground, and we are expecting a wonderful harvest! 

I really don’t know what I’m doing…just kind of praying that God will bless it!  Some of my thoughts during this process:

  1. “Need to till ground….that’s what husband’s are for!   I could never work that thing.  Besides, there is something “manly” about working with a tiller!  My husband really did look like he knew what HE was doing!  (Thank you, dear!)”
  2. “Wow…the dirt is really black!  That MUST mean that it’s fertile, right?!”
  3. “It’s going to rain in a few days, so the seeds need to go in today!”
  4. “Got to plan this thing right….tall things in the back, short plants in the front?”
  5. “Seed packet says, “Plant 2 to 3 seeds every two feet.”  Ok….if I plant 3-4 seeds every foot and half, then SURELY SOMETHING will grow?!”
  6. “A few hours later…..when the back is aching…try to remember why I started this in the first place!”
  7. “Oh boy, the neighbors are watching….hopefully, something looks right!”
  8. When the work is done, “Hmmm….looks pretty good!” (…A big pat on the back!)

Can’t wait to eat fresh tomatoes, corn, onions, radishes, cucumbers, broccoli, okra, brussel sprouts (yes, I really like them), strawberries and squash!!  If it works, you’re all invited to supper!!
