Spring Garden, new growth

Lots of new growth in the garden.  The muscadines have their leaves, green beans are growing up the trellis, peaches are starting, fava bean beans are flowering, and strawberries are ready every morning.
Today, I put in a new bed for tomatoes, marigolds and basil. 

Can't stop planting, watching plants grow from seed and mature is so amazing every time.  Can't wait to start a few more beds for eggplant, okra and tomatillos.

Spring Break Fun

Victoria and I have not done a lot for Spring Break but relax and enjoy ourselves and get some things done that needed to be done.  Yesterday was an amazing day!  We went canoeing down Goodby's Creek with David when he got home and saw some beautiful sights.
Goodby's Creek

An egret flying off of the post

This sign says, "compact cars only"????

Turtle sunning himself

A friendly baby alligator, don't know where mom was...

We painted the inside of Victoria's playhouse and she painted her table

The playhouse from far away

A great little room - love the color she chose!

Pole beans starting to sprout

Kale, kohlrabi, onions and oregano

corn sprouting and the fig tree getting some leaves

We also made some lotion and some soap with the loofahs

I was hoping to have a teacher planning day, but that did not occur.  Just some crafts, work and relaxing.  Have a blessed week!

Spring Garden - 2014

We had our work cut out for us today and it sure feels good to get some more plants in the ground.  Here is our existing ornamental/edible garden bed after new bamboo trellises were added and a lot of seed was planted.

Here you can see some new trellises (3) today and a new bed of plantings next to the walkway.

For the trellises I planted pole beans/summer savory, scarlet runner beans/summer savory, cucumbers, and a mixture of the pole beans/scarlet runner beans and summer savory.  We love fresh green beans!  For the bed next to the walkway I planted corn - painted hill corn, sweet corn and strawberry popcorn, pumpkins, melons, squash and sunflowers.  In some side beds I planted cilantro and bush beans.  Once everything starts growing I'll see what to add.  Also, I scattered sunflower seeds everywhere!  
Before we planted this morning - We planted near that orange tree in the distance.

Our new plantings - (2) peach trees to espalier, Japanese magnolia and pineapple guava

Here is a before picture of the beds without the trellises.   From here you can see the Swiss chard/onion, peas, broccoli and broccoli and onion bed.

An after pictuure of the beds with the trellises.  I think we are going to enjoy watching the established plants come to life and bloom this year.  I also planted some beautiful bulbs that are starting to come up.

We have potatoes, fava beans, lettuce and broccoli growing in our raised beds.  Now, I need to make some beds for hot peppers, eggplant and okra.  I did plant 5 roma tomatoes yesterday and 5 Abe Lincoln tomatoes, once they get established I will tuck basil and bell peppers under them for a good season of growth.  Sure hope we get a great harvest this year, I love seeing what grows and where.

Leaning in to God

  In this life, my trust, hope, strength and peace should come from God.  There have been many times in the past when I believed my life was and could be decided only by me.  I have found that yes, I make decisions, but God had always been there, first and foremost to protect, help and heal.
  Recently, leaning in to God had not been my top priority, but I want it to be. 
  Intentional prayer, love, faith that all will work out are the thoughts that I will hold dear.
  In the midst of chaos, broken water heater, water every where (only for a few minutes), timing valve replacement, eye appt, Dr appt, school, church, and all responsibilities, I pray that God will guide my day, my tongue, my smile and my heart. 
  Be blessed, all of you, may His comfort give you peace.
