In the garden this week ~

My early mornings have been so full around here as I wake early and grab a cup of coffee, spend some time in the Word, and talk a bit with my husband before I head out to the garden.

I love early mornings in the garden.  There’s not much that compares to starting your day with a little hard work and harvesting of food.  

May 18, 2011 018 herbs and wildflowers spilling out of the front beds

On most of these early mornings I am alone.  I am alone in the garden listening to the birds sing their morning songs and listening to the sounds of a city awakening to start its day.

Often I am singing to myself as I pull weeds, harvest veggies, or plant new seeds & plants.  I just can not come to the garden in the early morning without singing:

and the voice I hear, falling on my ear,

the Son of God discloses.

And He walks with me and He talks with me

He tells me I am His own,

May 18, 2011 030 These pole beans were supposed to be “bush beans” and were planted in a fashion for bush beans.   We had to get kind of creative with the trellis. 

And the joy we share as we tarry there,

May 18, 2011 038 My kids call this box planted with cucumbers, black beans, and nasturtiums “the jungle”.  Personally, I like it! 

None other has ever known.

Of course, it’s not long before I have many little garden helpers to help me in the garden!  {smile}

  1. Okay so I must ask Miss Adriane - where in the US do you live? Because I'm in cold Oregon and I only have lettuce (and small baby lettuce at that). How in the world do you have tomatoes and pumpkin blooming and peas ready to pick?

  2. WOW!
    Look at your garden!!!

    It's amazing what your family has done with a small patch of yard in the city.

    You remain to be a true inspiration.

    Love You!
