Not much going on in our garden, in fact we are ready to pull everything up and get our fall garden in. I’ve about decided that if you want a great summer garden you cannot do much of anything else, no vacations, no building projects, just weed, water and harvest. If you think about it I am right! That is because it is the season to do those things, you have to be focused on bringing in the harvest, if you don’t you’ll have very little or nothing during the winter.
This is so much like life. We have seasons; seasons where we have to really nurture our marriage this way when we are older we can drink in the beauty of two truly being one. The older I get the more I LOVE (and need) my husband. Staying married and happily married takes A LOT of work, and a lot of weeding out selfishness and watering with kindness and service!
We have seasons of parenting and this is one garden that you cannot neglect. When they are grown hopefully we will enjoy the fruit of our labor as we watch our children and grandchildren carry on a family vision!
We have seasons after our children are grown that we can pursue other fields to sow in, with hopes of bringing forth some eternal harvest.
I hope to be canning some beans soon from our local farmer. Our pears on the trees are almost ready.
How is your garden and harvest going?
I will announce the winner of the giveaway Tuesday.
