“Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them;”
King James Version (KJV)
Hello all! It’s that time again!
Just sharing some pictures from our garden, from the past. Not every year will bring you all the goodies you want and need. But we do make an effort to try.
The way how the economy is as of today, we all must be prepared to dig in the dirt and get our hands dirty to grow our food. Forget about how it was back in the day of 3 years ago things are getting serious.
Getting ready to work in the garden is work. Not glamorous. You have to prep your beds or containers you need to grow food. You need the soil, manure and other natural nutrients as well. Egg shells, coffee grounds and even banana peels! These are not expensive because if you drink coffee, eat eggs or bananas you can use the remains.
It is hard work to keep the garden healthy. But with GOD leading and protecting us in all we do, we will be fine.
I will suggest that if you do have a garden, have a fence too. Around all of your garden to help protect them from annoying critters like rabbits. They will kill off you young trees with their sharp teeth.
When you have a garden, be prepared to can your food as well so it will last you until the next year. Or give some away. It takes alot to feed a family for a year, so calculate what want to eat, how often by how many are in your family.
We do. And we need to grow what we want to eat. Some plants take up more space than others. But to grow string beans you will need at least a half pint per serving once canning it.
We do enjoy the food fresh. But your own canned food will always taste better than store bought.
Even seeing your flowers 💐. Sunflowers do need their space if you are growing the mammoth variety for the seeds for food.
Your hard work will always make you smile. Especially after you sit back and you see how and what our beloved FATHER GOD has allowed you to grow and eat.
Have a blessed day! Start growing your food even if you just start in a 5 gallon bucket on your porch. It’s a start! Please click on the like button below. Pass this forward so others will get a blessing from the word of GOD too!
Peace and blessings!
