After being away from our home for five days, there are many things that need my attention. I have kept my hands busy, but as I was walking out to the garden yesterday I found my happy place. I went to the garden to gather lettuce for dinner. I saw a weed that needed pulling. Two hours later I was still pulling weeds. The funny thing was I had no idea how much time I had spent out in the garden. The time just flew by, and I enjoyed myself more than I could ever imagined. Does this mean I am getting old? I remember my Dad enjoying his garden. I thought that must be what you do when you are old. (That was my thought when I was 16). I pray that my 16 year old logic was flawed because if it isn't that must mean I AM getting OLD!!!
Today has been very productive in the garden. All of my beds have been weeded and spruced up a bit. Michael and sons built a new raised bed. I filled that bed with squash and zucchini plants that I grew from seeds in our "green house". I hope to get back outside to continue to work on planting a few more herbs, flowers, and lettuce plants. We still have the material to complete 5 more beds. I will post pictures soon.
grace and peace,
