The Fruit of the Ground

Yesterday morning I went out after breakfast and dug some potatoes.  We never planted any potatoes this past Spring, but we had potatoes growing from last year; so I endeavored to care for them, maybe a little too late; but I started to do so anyway.

I may have gotten 10 pounds of small to smaller ones.  Even among a few people I know who planted potatoes they have reported harvesting small potatoes.

After I dug the potatoes, I went and borrowed a pickup truck, and a chainsaw to cut a limb off a gate which goes into our family cemetery.  A week or so ago we had a strong wind come along and a limb broke off crushing one of the two metal gates, and resting on top of them both.  I cut the limb into wood chunks, and threw the brush from the limb over the hill side.  It looks much better now.

In the  afternoon I replaced a missing shingle on our house, which was due to wind damage some time ago.  That’s done now.

I am thankful for the Fruit of the Ground which the GOD of all creation has provided, and the labor that goes with it; especially the strength to do it, along the banks of Flat Creek.
