|a bucket of weedy goodness.|
when we first started weeding the kids would ask, "Is this a weed, Mom?"
over and over.
i finally figured out that it was easier to identify the PLANTS and pull everything else.
THIS is a baby tomato plant, i would teach them.
Everything else is a weed.
Even if it isn't a weed-- a stray corn, in the tomatoes still gets pulled.
i have reflected on this truth over and over the last month.
what am i growing?
everything else is a weed.
|our spinach leaves gone to seed...|
|our romaine lettuce... i try to eat it, but it's SO strong. we need a rabbit to feed it too. ;)|
|it looks good, doesn't it?|
my garden will not grow EVERYTHING-- but what it grows will be tended to with care.
|don't you think these peppers are beautiful? i do.|
|a pepper picked prematurely by a pink panther...|
sometimes i am planting, sometimes i am weeding, and sometimes i am harvesting.
ALWAYS my life is full of goodness.
|took us awhile to figure these out-- they are sugar snap peas. you eat them IN the pod.|
for sure, our favorite thing to eat from the garden so far!!
we have a whole section of gratitude and perspective just breaking ground.
our unity bushes are budding and our stalks of testimony are growing taller.
we have just a few young reading plants- just sprouting their second set of leaves.
and a bunch of overgrown readers that we're having to trim back a little.
one sleeping through the night plant that still needs fertilizer.
lots of budding musicians.
we have a two large maples that are just about grafted together and growing strong as one.
and a few acorns laying around that we are still trying to identify.
yes, i KNOW you are supposed to pick them small.
i promise-- it was small and then, it was HUGE... overnight.
anyone want a MONGO zucchini?
i just pray to know what seeds will grow best in this garden of mine.
|i grew celery!! real celery.|
|i have NO IDEA how or when to pick celery.|
|tomatoes are coming... don't say i didn't warn you!! we are going to be SWIMMING in tomatoes!|
|herbs are like baby animals. when i see them at the store they are so cute, i just want them.|
|and then they grow bigger and i don't know what to do with them.|
why is it scary for me to just go CUT some and use it in my dinner?
|i have a weird phobia of big herb plants.|
ha. counseling anyone?
and both yield beautiful rewards.
want to take a walk with me around my flower gardens?
ok-- they are lovely.
plants are BEAUTIFUL.
who knew that i already AM a farmer's wife.
