On this “Good Friday”… I want to share my veggie garden harvest. This harvest may not look like a lot to you… but I’m proud! I’ve been harvesting tomatoes for several weeks now … but the cukes are new. Wow! They were hiding under the leaves and I hadn’t noticed. Not a bad yield for 4 cucumber plants I planted in my flower bed. My peppers are coming along too.
Now the strawberries are a sad lot. I’m lucky to get these few… because the quail usually beat me to them.
Now… I don’t garden for great yield. I go down to my friend, “Farmer Grant’s” garden store when I want an abundance of produce. I garden for my “Soul.” There is nothing like watching the plants grow and develop produce. I’m out in my garden everyday… checking things out.
You who walk,
Maybe with troubled thoughts,
Come, enter here and rest;
And may the sweet serenity of growing things,
And the heavenly,peace
Be mirrored in they soul.
-Doxis M. Palmer
I enter my little garden… and love the sweet serenity of the flowers and veggies I grow… no matter how small.
I hope you have a hobby or some small thing that give you respite for your soul.
Have a “Good Friday.”
