1. in the spring when my tulips and daffodils bloom.
2. in the summer when I harvest from my gardens.
3. Christmas/Easter when I consider all what God did for me. Blows me away sometimes.
Right now God's bounty in the result from my gardening is high in my mind.
I like gardening but I'm not worried about keeping all weeds out of my garden. I look at weeds as opportunities to feed the bunnies greens so letting them grow a bit doesn't bother me. :) I don't frequently till, water or otherwise fuss to much. I plant it and basically remove big weeds when them grow.
I don't worry about early starting plants a whole lot. I move things around, I grow things too closely together and yet..... God chooses to bless me every year. :)
Check out the bounty from God this year.
The size of this potato I credit to one thing...beyond God's bounty and seeing as God has allowed me the distinct pleasure of raising them....bunnies and their offal.
Justin dug it out for me.
His response"good thing I had my digger tool mommy."
Took him a good minute to get it out. :)
And check out my tomato patch!
NOTE: this after I trimmed it back!
I lopped about 1 foot off the top and
two feet on the gardens' side and 6 inches of the composter side.
Normally my tomatoes experience a fair amount of die back.
So my habit of planting close has no negative repercussions.
This year....No die back.
It's been very strange.
As a result I've been getting LOTS of snails/slugs and Some End rot on my tomatoes.
NOT appreciated. So today I said...I'm clipping you back.
Hopefully I clipped enough to get rid of the end rot.
The slugs/snails will soon meet Mr. Beer in a Saucer.
I may need to trim back more........
Oh for the bunnies this>>>
