Simple Gardening

I am a “city farmer.”
How can that be?
It is quite simple…I grow my tomato and pepper plants in pots on my patio. Whoo-Hoo

“Pepper plants in pots on my patio” Now there is a phonics lesson or a lesson on alliteration if I’ve ever heard one!! But I regress…………….

I have kept the critters away from the pots. They have been void of pests. I have grinned from ear to ear picking my first tomato and pepper…..but “city farming” does not sustain you. Two tomato plants and two pepper plants will not make a serious batch of salsa.

So what’s a girl to do? Call her uncle, the “country farmer.” The man grows everything.

Out in the country……

…… the ground……

………in rows.

I have been making salsa, refrigerator pickles and anything else that I can make with my food processor. I have a very giving uncle.

It is kind of like studying God’s word. If I don’t really get into it daily, if I don’t really spend time with His word, when I really need it….I don’t know it. Oh, I know the popular verses, but I cannot remember the ones that I need for a particular situation at a particular time. And I have no one to blame but myself.

How we need to impress this upon our children as they grow.

Galatians 6:7-8 “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.  Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”

I think next year I will plant a garden….maybe a few rows at least!

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~

Thanks for stopping by! Would love to hear from you....
