Our Garden !



We have been working on our garden lately. Chuck built a raised bed and filled it with some wonderful veggies, lettuces, herbs and strawberries. The boys loved picking out what vegetables they wanted to grow. Their favorite thing they picked out was "chocolate peppermint".

We are praying for a bountiful garden full of great food for us this spring/summer. I have never had a garden and really know nothing about taking care of one. My family loves to tell stories about the time I decided to grow tomatoes and had NO clue what I was doing ! So, I have been reading gardening books and talking to "seasoned" gardeners. I really want to learn as much as I can. Of course, Chuck has way more experience with gardening. We pray "The plans of the diligent lead to profit" Proverbs 21:5a

This is great! We planted a garden with the boys for the first time last year...and it was so much fun. The boys ate the vegetables they got to pick like it was candy:-).

Thank you SO MUCH much for the beautiful piece of fabric and wish/scripture for Sophie. It really means so much. I'll be posting a picture of it in the next couple days as long as you don't mind.

Great garden! I need to post pics of ours too. I wish I was brave enough to try lettuces! In this hot Houston weather I am afraid they will all wilt and die! Thanks for the encouragement today! : )
