Putting in a Garden

In the past few years we have attempted to do some gardening, but without much success.  This year our son Timothy and wife Sarah have done much work on getting the garden spot ready for planting.  They spent all day this past Saturday [March 10] harrowing, plowing, tilling, and other things too.  I spent part of that time burning a brush pile; and part of the afternoon doing a little bit to help.

I was worn out.  I am fairly certain that Timothy and Sarah were worn out physically too.

It is amazing the temperatures we are having now.  Trees are budding.  The Bradford Pears are in blossom and leaves have come out too.  It seems so early.  There is an old weather proverb that says, “Thunder in February; there will be frost in May.”   Well, there was thunder in February.  We will see if there is frost in May.  Frost will be a death knell for many plants unless they are protected.

It will be interesting watching how the Lord will bless our crops this year.
