Sunflowers and Green Beans
With all the negative talk out of the way, let me share the joys of the garden from this year. I have sunflowers everywhere. They are standing tall and proud in the first two rows of the garden. I also have them in vases and containers all throughout the house. They make me happy! I also have zinnias in bloom and they too are poked here and there in pretty jars in our home.
We are also enjoying green onions, zucchini, squash, peas, and lettuce from our garden. We also planted 3 more small rows of pole beans so that we can have fresh green beans for eating all summer long. I won't be canning these!
What have I learned from this year's garden? Although it may not be perfect, I can still enjoy and use it. I just have to step over the weeds from time to time. Come to think of it, it is kind of like my life.
grace and peace,
