I have been working hard on my garden these last couple of weeks! Broccoli, onions and potatoes have already been planted! And, I've been busy putting in a walkway to keep weeds more manageable and in the spirit of Square Foot Gardening!
David found the stones while I was in Colorado - an entire pallet for only $15! There is something wrong with them and they break easily - but for our purposes, they are going to work great. Can't beat the price!
I have high hopes for my garden this year and have found myself praying for its success while out there working on it! There are so many spiritual lessons we can take from cultivating the earth, pulling the weeds, planting good things and watching them grow. It is an experience that feels so pure and wholesome as well.
We had a fun experience getting our seeds and starter plants. I've always ordered my seeds through the mail, but after a friends' suggestion to try our local Feed & Seed - I did just that. It was sort of like stepping back in time. There was a neat wooden built-in behind the counter that had lots of compartments for all the seeds. We picked seed potatoes out of a bin and had fun watching the man scooping out all of our seeds! In the parking lot, we enjoyed hearing a rooster crow.
I've only had one bug experience with a large brown spider - but God is good and I just went to the other side of the garden to work for a while! My hope is that our family will enjoy having fresh veggies to eat, enjoy working on the garden together and have more than enough to share with friends as well.
Anyone else started any gardening? I know it is way too early in many parts of the country - it is hard for me to get used to the idea of working on my garden in February and even March!
