Spring Garden 2

So I am a little late. No, no, it is not what you are thinking. I am late planting my seeds. My plan was to plant last week. I don't know why but things just don't go according to plan around here. So tonight I finally did it! I started my tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and a few different flowers. I planted then I prayed. I know that whatever comes up is by the Father's hand. It amazes me that he has given us seed and the ability to grow food and beauty. Have you ever thought about that? Flowers really have no purpose. They are just beautiful.

My planting began with seeds!!!! Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co. was introduced to me by my darling friends the Emmitts. Get the seed catalog just to look at. It is one of my favorite winter activities. Additionally, they have some really unique varieties and a cool story to tell. Here is the link

Now I know this looks just like wet dirt in an egg carton. But just wait. I hope!

This, my friends, will be teaming with little green life in a few weeks. I can't wait to show you. I pray!

This is one of the bigger planting projects going on at our home. Trees! Plus a few grasses and shrubs! Look at Asher and his daddy work.

So I know it was freezing and we were all wearing jackets but we had our first meal outside this week! Gooooooooooo Spring!

Finally, oh my goodness. This makes a mama melt and fall into a puddle of goo. Not gross goo but sweet, little, chubby baby in my heart goo.

Blessings to you all and may Yod Hey Vav Hey be with you this Passover season. Shalom!

I LOVE that you ate outside! Dan thinks I'm nuts because I tell him Spring is almost here. As far as I'm concerned, when January is's Spring!
