Gardens....

With our trip coming at the time it did, our garden isn't even planted yet. My husband's plan for today is to get it planted! We don't plant much because we don't have much of an area that can be used for growing veggies....too much shade etc. We do manage to do pole beans and tomatoes and some times we add other stuff. This was sent to me in an email from a dear friend this morning and I thought, "How appropriate...especially since we are focused on planting today!"

Come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses....

FOR THE GARDEN OF DAILY LIVING,

PLANT THREE ROWS OF PEAS:

1. Peace of mind

2. Peace of heart

3. Peace of soul

PLANT FOUR ROWS OF SQUASH:

1. Squash gossip

2. Squash indifference

3. Squash grumbling

4. Squash selfishness

PLANT FOUR ROWS OF LETTUCE:

1. Lettuce be faithful

2. Lettuce be kind

3. Lettuce be patient

4. Lettuce really love one another

NO GARDEN IS COMPLETE WITHOUT TURNIPS:

1. Turnip for worship

2. Turnip for service

3. Turnip to help one another

TO CONCLUDE, THE GARDEN MUST HAVE THYME:

1. Thyme for family

2. Thyme for friends

3. Thyme for each other

WATER FREELY WITH PATIENCE AND CULTIVATE WITH LOVE. REMEMBER: YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW!

Hi Claire- A day of gardening sounds lovely, and I really liked the "Garden of Daily Living". The end is a good reminder to me that we reap what we sow. Glad you're back!:)

I love the garden recipe!! Gotta save that one.

Our garden is bare, too. Just sorta hard, mooshy-when-wet ground out there, completely nekkid and w/o seeds. Guh.

We have GOT to get busy on it!!

Got a ton of rain last night, but it was tilled recently before that. MAYBE we can get a bit of planting done this weekend.

We shall see.

Have a greay day!
