It was such a beautiful Sunday – not too hot and not too cool (or windy) – that I decided to work in the garden after church. With the abundant rain we received last week (Thank You Lord!) I had to re-work some of the rows I had already dug after they more or less washed out. I had several tomato and pepper plants to put in the ground … we now have 26 or 27 tomato (I lost count) plants – ‘cause we love tomatoes in our house!
I picked up another blister or two, started on my summer tan and wore myself out, but in a good way. I love to get out and dig around, play in the dirt if you will – so relaxing and satisfying. Not that I claim to be an expert gardener, but I give it my all. I was thinking about what to write for today’s article and reminded of someone whose story I was introduced to recently.
