Vegetable Garden Progress
We are getting to the end of the summer season in the vegetable garden.
This is what my garden looked like in early to mid June.
How neat and tidy it all looks! It was a pleasure for my eyes
and my sense of orderliness…..
and this is what it looks like today…..
Ahhh…what a tangled mess!
Some of the tomato cages have toppled over, and the tomatoes are running everywhere;
the sunflowers got so tall and toppled into the path and bowed over the gladiolas-I can’t even find them!
The squash vines covered some pathways.
Some beds packed so tight it is ridiculous.
(I will say that the bark mulch in the paths have keep most of the weeds at bay at least.)
I have to carefully wend my way through the pathways that are clear,
and step over the run-aways.
This is not how I like my garden to look-
it is no longer a pleasure to my eyes!
But…even though it is no longer a pleasure to the eyes,
it is a pleasure to the belly.
Bringing in regular baskets to the kitchen.
Have been canning and eating fresh.
And loving it.
I will be sorry to see the garden die for the year.
So…. how did your garden grow?
The Lord shall preserve thy going out
and thy coming in from this time forth,
and even for evermore.
