How do the Gardens Grow?

After 7 years we finally are able to have a garden again! Though its does come with hard work we are greatly enjoying it and cannot wait till next year when we will be able to plant in full. This year we are just getting in what we can and have started with 6 30''x 20' raised rows and have tomatoes, peppers, beans, lettuce, zucchini and cucumbers growing! At the back of the garden we have pumpkins, watermelon and sunflowers planted. May God bless and bring the increase!
The fence and archway made out of dead branches from our curly willow tree!

Morning Glories by the archway.
Last week we headed over to Port Huron to visit our dear Aunt Myrt and Uncle Warren, pick up some plants and be inspired by her huge garden!

Beautiful flowers, fruits and vegetables have been gracing their property for many years and have been a blessing to others as they sell the seedlings and plants and produce at their road stand.

Their lovely green house - the home of many plants in earlier months when the frost was still around.

Just before we left Uncle Warren showed us their newest residences on the ladder along side the barn. A nest of robins sat between the rungs!

Can you tell how many babies there are?

Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.
Then the earth shall yield her increase;
God, our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us,
And all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.
Psalm 67:5-7
