The photos aren’t so great. I’ve been playing around with my camera and am still trying to figure it all out. I have to admit we haven’t been out in the garden much this week, lots of time spent celebrating a certain 8 year old’s birthday (more to come on that). The little time we spent in the garden we pulled weeds, drove trucks, ran around, and made some plans.
I have some egg shells in the fridge that I’m planning to add to my tomato bed this week. I also have to figure out how we are going to water. Steve promises me that he will repair the hose that I’m going to be running across our yard to water our garden, but as of today it is still not repaired. Luckily we have had enough rain to keep everything looking good.
Planning to spend more time this week in the garden. It is so fun to watch it all grow, so rewarding. I heard from someone, somewhere that less people are choosing to plant gardens because they don’t receive that instant gratification that we are used to in our world today. I was thinking on that. Most things that are truly valuable take time, work, and patience. These things yeild the greatest reward. I love that my kids are able to see that first hand, everyday, out in our garden.
Oh, no deer problems this week. The fence is up and we haven’t seen any signs of deer disturbance. Here is hoping it will stay that way!
