Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before. Then people who are not Christians will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others. First Thessalonians 4:11-12 (NLT)

Can we bless God?

This question has been on my mind lately. I have seen things saying "Bless God". How do we do this? "Bless you" is something we casually say to others. What does it mean? Should we be saying it so lightly? I am going to have to do some studying up on this!

Another Apron

I made another apron today. This one is for Mom. I didn't have a pattern for what I wanted, so I just winged it. It turned out nice.

I made myself a new apron today. It was fun to get back to sewing.

Sweet Potatoes

My sweet potato plants came today. They are mostly dead. I will baby them for a few weeks before transplanting outside.

I planted pole beans today - only 12 hills. It won't be enough to can for the winter, but every little bit helps. Reseeded the corn where large patches haven't come up yet.

We got the garden planted yesterday - most of it anyway. I will wait another week or two before I put out my peppers and tomatoes.

             Great Northern - 9
             Coco Rubico - 9
             Derby Bush - 60
Peas - Sugar Snap 2 rows 8 ft long
           Karina - 2 rows 15 ft long
Cabbage - 40 (out of 72 seeds started)
Onions - Walla Walla
               Super Star
               Candy Apple Red
Potatoes - Kennebec - 5 hills with 3 in each
                 Yukon Gold - 4 hills with 3 in each
Garlic - (will check count when they come up more)

We got the Herb Garden area dug out and the box put in place. I need to find some compost to finish filling it up. I purchased a sweet basil, stevia, and sweet mint plant. I still need to find several additional herbs for this area.

It was a beautiful day for gardening, the first rain-free day in weeks. It strated raining late last night so the garden is now well watered.
