Yesterday morning the fog was so thick in our area that you could almost slice it with a knife. Okay… okay I’m exaggerating, maybe… a little, but the fog was thick. It was pretty to me. Of course I didn’t have to drive in it. I like almost all kinds of weather except bad storms and there is even beauty in that. God has a purpose and reason for everything and He controls the weather. Like anything else in our lives we can look for the good or expect the evil; I prefer the good. No I would not like fog every day nor would I want rain every day. I’m just thankful that I don’t control it one way or another.
I’m trying to decide what I want to plant in my spring garden. It isn’t an easy choice since I have limited space. I just always pray that God supplies me with enough to share. And He does. I guess I’m greedy because I want to try everything. Some of the things I plant make it and some don’t. In my opinion that is just part of being a gardener or farmer; taking chances. This past fall was the first time I tried to grow cauliflower and it is coming along fine. I’m sort of proud of it but I believe I will have to wait until next fall to plant it again since we have some very hot summer days which start early in Florida.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have five or ten acres to grow whatever you wanted? Ahhhh… but it is only a dream. At my age I probably would not be able to keep up with that much land. I will just be thankful for what I have and that I am able to work it. We are sort of planning to add two more 8×4 foot raised beds which will double my space so that’s good. I’m thinking maybe I’ll give okra a try.
Thank you for stopping by and until next time I will be pouring over seed catalogs and dreaming of a bountiful harvest. God bless.
