A Garden for Him to Dwell!!

June 30, 2008

Gardening in the Back YardSo I thought it would be a cool idea and time filler to have a little garden in the country with my father.  He enlisted his experience and his tractor to haul the dirt to help me out.  Tonya, my good friend from Liberty, Mississippi, is a master gardener also gave me a few good ideas to have a modern garden.  An easier garden I should say, like having a raised bed instead of tilling the hard ground and  spraying weed killer then laying down black weed cloth before pouring in fresh soil, all to keep the weeds from growing and taking over the vegetable plants.   It took about 3 hours of steady working and shoveling and this was the hardest part.    I wondered, how many weeds will come up and have to be pulled out so the plant can get all the nutrients and water needed to produce vegetables or fruit?   So far, not to many have grown in this garden and I’ve only had to put in a couple hours of work a week in it.  As I shoveled,  I thought of the garden of Eden and my heart being the garden of my life today. Hopefully God will reveal the weeds in my heart and pull them out before the roots grow to deep and we can dwell happily together as long as I do my part and keep my heart cultivated and watered too!  I pray God gives us more grace to do this as His children, church and bride…….ps..so far, I’ve gotten 2 banana peppers and the enjoyment of watching it grow!! Hope you enjoy seeing a small picture of country life! love ya!
