This year I am trying my hand at gardening. I have never done this before so it should be interesting to see if I can get anything to grow or if my garden project will be a lost cause.

Our Garden Project

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Lately, looking at the garden area has been depressing. It looks so cold and dead. I long for spring and the days of vibrant color in the garden.   (more…)

This summer’s garden has been a success. It took three years to get a successful garden but we finally made it happen. (more…)

Its Tomato Time….

Our Garden

It took longer than it should have but I have finally finished planting the garden and flowers. I have also got my garden sitting area set up and it is a welcoming oasis. This is our second year with the raised garden beds.  (more…)

Somewhat Successful

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

One of the most delightful things about a garden is the anticipation it provides ~ W.E. Johns

The summer gardening season has almost come to a close. This year I would have to describe my garden as “somewhat successful.”  My efforts this season were much more successful than previous seasons, but still lacking. I look forward to an even more productive gardening season next year. (more…)

There is nothing as tasty or juicy as a tomato picked right off the vine. This year my tomato crop has been excellent. I have not had a store bought tomato all summer long. I am so glad that the bugs decided to leave the tomato plants alone this year. (more…)

Tossed Salad

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

This past week we harvested the first vegetables from our garden. We had lettuce and spinach. We had enough lettuce for several tossed salads and enough spinach for omelets, salads, and as a steamed vegetable for dinner. Last year all of the lettuce we planted tasted horrible. For some reason it had a bitter taste that was really overwhelming. This year we do not have that problem and it taste just fine. (more…)

Garden Sitting Area

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

This past weekend I finished the sitting area in my garden. I wanted to create a quiet place where I could sit and do nothing, study God’s word, or just read for pleasure. I plan to use this area of the garden each morning this summer as I start my day with my devotional study. I have always wanted to have a garden with a sitting area. (more…)

It’s Coming Together

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

David and Caleb have finished the frames for 4 raised garden beds. The beds are 8 foot long, by 4 foot wide and 13 inches in depth.  The beds have 2 foot of space between them which will be covered  with garden fabric and mulch to prevent weeds and grass from growing in the area.  Caleb and David have already started filling the raised bed with garden dirt. We still need several truck loads of dirt and manure in order to properly fill the garden beds. (more…)

Raised Garden Beds

Monday, January 31st, 2011

It was a beautiful weekend here in Georgia. Caleb and David spent a lot of time outside preparing our garden area for the coming spring. Caleb found some carrots and I cleaned them and made them into carrot bread. I was surprised that the carrots actually grew and survived the winter. The smell of these carrots gave me a touch of Spring Fever. (more…)
