Saturday Garden Journal


The garden at Cozy Acres is loving this hot summer weather.
the Farmer is loving this hot summer weather.
the Knitter is trying to survive.


Volunteer Watermelon plants are looking good;
about ready to thump this melon to see if it is ripe.
A few bell peppers have been picked, sweetness.
About a half dozen red, ripe tomatoes have made it to the kitchen.
The cherry tomatoes and yellow pear tomatoes are coming into the kitchen by scant handfuls.
I think the Farmer is munching in the garden.


I love the method the Farmer has developed to water just the plants;
that way we have a beautiful weed free garden.

All this vegetable bounty has supplied
the first Saturday Veggie Stand of the season.
I sit and knit and wait for the customers.
Everyone this Saturday asked when the tomatoes would be ripe.
the Farmer’s tomatoes have a reputation all their own.


Available for sale,  Pesticide Free Squash,
zucchini, yellow crooked neck, and scallops,
green cucumbers, Fresno Chilies, Jalapenos, eggplant,
Green bell peppers and range free eggs.

I’m joining Ginny at Small Things, to share our gardens. Ginny has a raised bed vegetable plots – so pretty.

ps:   the Farmer is retired;  gardening is his passion.  He is also co-caretaker of the church property, where we worship and live and garden in the back corner.

July 5, Today’s thought — Leave the Edge

Have you seen the Farmer’s hat, yet?
He calls it his umbrella. Thanks, Dan.

Good Morning

So let us go on to grown-up teaching.
Let us not go back over the beginning lessons
we learned about Christ. Hebrews 6:1

I like the story of the little boy who fell out of bed.
When his Mom asked him what happened,
he answered,
“I don’t know. I guess I stayed too close to where I got in.”

Easy to do the same with our faith.
It’s tempting just to stay where we got in and never move.
Pick a time in the not-too-distant past.
A year or two ago.
Now ask yourself a few questions.
How does your prayer life today compare with then?
How about your giving?
Have the amount and the joy increased?
What about your church loyalty?
Can you tell you’ve grown?
And Bible study?
Are you learning to learn?. . .
Don’t make the mistake of the little boy.
Don’t stay too close to where you got in.
It’s risky resting on the edge.
When God Whispers Your Name – Max Lucado

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ,
let us go on unto perfection;
not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works,
and of faith toward God,
   Hebrews 6:1

Trust God for your day. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
