The Garden

I am thrilled with our garden. We planted it a couple of weeks ago. Last year we were unable to have one but this year we made up our minds that we would have one. There is so much controversy over our food and water. If you listen to the doctors on TV you wouldn't be able to eat or drink anything.

I personally would love to just eat raw fruits and vegetable but living in Central Nebraska that isn't always possible. When you do eat fresh foods we still have to deal with the agents that they spray on the food plus the wax and preservatives they use to make them look pretty.

I would love to live on a little acre and raise a couple of milk cows and a few head of cattle that can be grass feed, raise chickens, and have a massive garden. (although that sounds like a lot of work) Then I could be sure what my family is eating. My son-in-law has a serious problem with gout so what i feed him is very important.

My garden is coming up! It looks beautiful! I am so pleased with it. We planted several rows of corn,(peaches and cream, I don't know if you can get it but I love that stuff) potatoes, red onions, strawberries, cucumbers, green beans, peas, beets, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, squash, honey dew melons, and watermelons. It is so amazing to watch God work. Some how watching seeds grow just makes me feel closer to God. Today it is raining and you can almost see the plants grow. God is so good and we are so Blessed.

I pray you will be Blessed this week end. I know I will. 


  1. Sounds heavenly...acres, chickens, fresh milk. I agree. I love having our garden. I love sending the kids out to snack on organic strawberries and peas. And having fresh eggs is fabulous. Take care!

  2. Thanks for the comment, I appreciate the visit from friends. God bless you.
