I have been working so hard on the pattern, that my garden has been growing without me......oh and those nasty weeds they have been growing with out me too. Makes me think of when sin entered the Garden......and God said......
HOLD THAT THOUGHT PLEASE!
I am interrupting here........as I was writing this post and had just put the picture up of the zucchini up, my sweet man came in the house saying the Momma Guinea was freaking out because a snake was getting her eggs. She doesn't have a husband so they are not fertile, but still. Sweet man, Tress, Tay, V and myself with camera went running out the door.
Here is what we found......he had an egg partially in his mouth.
Sweet man caught the snake.......perfect lesson for Vitaliy to understand scripture...........is God so in the DETAILS of our daily lives?
V just wanted to hold the tail. This was a Prairie King snake and they are very docile.
My rhubarb has caterpillars.
I am using a Citrus Mixture to see if I can get them to quit eating my leaves. I will be making some up today. This summer we will be fighting the bugs.......we didn't have a hard winter and we are seeing what that means!
Right by where the snake was, I have my rhubarb patch. I had noticed the other day that little fuzzy caterpillars were getting my plants......I looked and they were taking over in just those few days.
The scripture that I had just put in my post really jumped out at me even more. Not just little weeds were in my garden, but lessons of the Truth of His Word were all around my farm. I am praying that V and our girls will get the object lessons tonight when we meet around the Word. Precious is our Lord......to give us teachable moments!
Now to get back to what I was writing about earlier.....
I have the whole chapter of Genesis 3 HERE for you to read. Please take time to read with your family.
To Adam He said, “Because you listened to your
wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I
commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,
“Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will
eat food from it all the days of your life.
It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.19
By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return.
Adam named his wife Eve, because she
would become the mother of all the living.
Gen 3: 18-19
I love how Adam named his wife.......precious thing!
My sweet man has named me.........his Pretty Prairie Flower....that is why our farm is named that.....I know silly, but I love it!
Thankful for Jesus.......He came to give us freedom from our sins!!!!!! Amazing LOVE!
Here are some pic's of my garden.
This is a flower from my winter onions. They are looking so pretty! I will let the onions keep growing.....they are getting so big now and by the by the end of the summer they will be bigger. I will be cutting the flowers off.
This truly makes my heart smile.......see that little baby zucchini?
Little baby squash..........can't wait until we can use it for cooking!
Potatoes are growing really tall. Can't wait to sneak some from underneath!
My green beans.........see those little weeds? Today we will be picking up 20 bales of straw. V and I will lay paper on the ground and then straw on top of the paper........NO MORE WEEDING FOR ME! It also makes the moisture stay in the ground and not evaporate!
Here is my lemon verbena, it is so so good in this recipe!
Click here and print off.
Do you notice the plant to the left side? I planted daisies everywhere on the farm next to the veggies!!!!!!! Once they get established it will be so nice to walk into my garden each year.
I am sorry that this is so long.......it's my journal and if I don't get it written.....they won't have my story.
Hugs to your day from the farm......and may the Lord bless you real good!
