Our Family is Growing......

Now I know all of you think you getting great news about a new Barraco baby but...........sorry :(

We just started our new garden. Just one more of my green living ways to check off my wish list. We are going the Square Foot Garden type.

I have dragged my butt long enough. I have always wanted to have a garden but NEVER had the time/money or desire to dig up the hard Louisiana soil. I have had the box built for a month. I also have had dying vegetable on my patio table crying out to me daily to keep them alive. It took me this long to get my soil. It didn't cost much. I cannot wait to see my veggies start to grow. We planted tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, bell pepper and marigold to keep 'squitos away. We plan to put in pumpkins in July for the fall and some other things. I also plan on putting in a box for the children. I might tye in an object lesson on sin being like weeds in a garden. If we don't confess our sin or pull out the weeds in our garden it chokes life. Hmmmmmm.

I'll keep you updated on the growing. Of children and veggies.
