What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Taters and A First Planting

I finally cleaned out the potato bin of the last of the winter POTATOES and cut them up for seed.  It feels good to have a fresh potato bin.  It will feel better to have a fresh and FULL potato bin!


The potatoes and onions are in.  The sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, carrots, broccoli and cabbage too.  And we planted our first rows of spinach and lettuce- leaving space for a few more rows in the coming weeks.

But especially impressive is how arrow-straight the rows are.  

How DO we do it?!?

Rains are expected for the next few days so I *really* hope to squeeze some garden time in this afternoon to plant the last of my seeds---corn, summer and winter squashes, more carrots, cukes, etc. 

I am hardening off the 76 tomato plants- along with the flowers and basil and peppers and such- that I started way back when.  

Their time will come....
