Before Saturday, I STILL had not had a chance to get my hands dirty. I hadn’t had a chance to get into my garden at ALL. (You’re shocked at me, aren’t you?!) I had longed to get out there, but just not had even one moment to think about the garden yet.
Thankfully, Matt had found a few bits and pieces of time during the past few weeks to get our garden areas tilled up and to plant a few things. Ooh, and he even brought us home a big truck load of horse manure. Crazy how excited I was to see him that day. Saturday, we were finally able to both work in the garden together and get several more things planted.
The day was sunny and beautiful. Just ask Matt…I was completely giddy. I was running my hands through the soil…just for fun. It felt so good.
Yes, in case you didn’t already know that I am a garden geek…now you know for sure. I can’t help it. The garden gives me so much joy.
Wanna take a look at a few parts of it with me? (There’s more to be planted…these are just a few shots.)
We have lettuce ready to eat…it is so beautiful!
You can’t see it…but there’s corn in these rows!!
Aw, cute little pepper plants.
Oh yes…I did plant potatoes in my trash can again!!
I’m just so thankful for our garden. I love how we can see God in the entire process of watching food grow from a seed. I can’t wait to share more with you during the coming months!
