I’ve one little spout on the top of the purple sweet potato I got at the Seed Swap. I’ll be excited to get that planted and hopefully have purple sweet potatoes. Success in growing stuff always makes me feel great. But at the same time I don’t stress too much over the failures.
Oh if it was only so easy in the really world as it is in my garden beds. If something isn’t going right I just pull it out and start something new. Not so easy to do in real life. Things would get pretty messy really fast.
Mom dropped off a book she found in a second hand store. She said she knew I needed it and as mother’s go she’s probably right. It has short passages with verses on each page. Gardening often becomes my quiet time; when I feel closest to God. There is so much agrarian imagery in the Bible that for me my garden seems to be the perfect spot to talk the Him.
Currently, it’s raining and the sun keeps peeking out from behind the clouds. Everything is washed fresh and glistens in the brief light.
