Who am I to argue with the Word of God? There are definite seasons and times to plant and harvest. With that in mind, I tried to plant a whole lot in one day.
The first activity was the church garden. Our women's ministry is planting a garden for the members of our church with hopes to donate any leftovers to a local food bank. We started the day with praying and then proceeded to plant 2 rows of beans, 6 rows of corn, cucumbers, watermelon, cantaloupe, peppers, and I am sure something else, I just can't remember.
While I was working on that, Glen was at my dad's house building a raised bed vegetable garden. We are giving him a garden for his 69th birthday. He has been talking about having a garden since he moved here 3 years ago, but his Rheumatoid Arthritis has prevented him. So, Glen and I decided to make a low maintenance garden that he may enjoy his own tomatoes, basil, cucumbers, peppers, and zucchini without too much work.
When I finished at the church garden and the kids had finished swimming, we went and planted PapPap's garden and had a lovely dinner of venison tenderloin and oven roasted vegetables with my family. It was a great, albeit exhausting day!
