It is one of those beautiful mornings.......windows open......cool breeze going through our farm house.......lit a candle while I am posting and very very happy because We GOT RAIN!!! Thank you to all who prayed with last night on facebook. The ground is soaked.....it really came down off and on all night. 1/3" of pure God Rain.......falling all over our garden and farm. So needed!!!!! Spent some time in my garden this morning...it was lovely! Thanking the Lord! We prayed so hard last night. The storm looked like it was going to miss us...........it didn't.....we had to say thanks over and over! It was obvious to us He stepped in!
I walked over by my cantaloupe plant......rain on the leaves.......looked so pretty, big rain drops!!!
The corn looks good. It isn't edible corn.....it is pretty ornamental corn. A friend gave it to us so we could try. The rain will help it to grow better. God's water is the best!!!!!! If you have ever farmed or had a garden you know what I am talking about! It is so amazing what rain can do. We as farmers are dependent on the Lord's provisions. It is good to be that~ dependent on Him that is.
The Lemon Verbena plant is looking gorgeous!!!!!! If you would like some dried leaves, I can send some in the mail for $2.00, that includes shipping. It would be a zip lock baggie full with leaves. Let me know. Put lemon verbena in the subject line. prairie flower farm at g mail dot com We take paypal, check or money order. You can use it in the Lemon Verbena Bread recipe or make tea, scroll down on the right hand side of my blog. It is the best best tasting bread! Also can be made into mini muffins.....cute for a party.
I had to tie up some of the branches on the tomato plants. They were all weighed down because of the heavy rain on each leaf.
You know how the covers of any Gooseberry Patch Cookbook is just so beautiful? Wellll, I am starting to put their cookbooks in my cupboard behind my dishes! When I open my cupboard doors.......this is what I see. Cute little idea... if I say so myself. Smile! I thought it up...by myself! I really needed some extra room for some of my Gooseberry Cookbooks and this seemed a perfect place. Plus I get to see the front covers every time I open a cupboard door. It hardly takes any space up at all.
is still going on until August 4th.
Come and sign up if you haven't already!!!!!!
Hugs to your day!!!!!!!
