Well, yesterday had a few challenges. Michael already had a computer, as did I, when we got married. However, they, like us, are now hooked up together! His PC went down yesterday and the next day he took mine down with his (how's that for togetherness?) Anyway, he's up and going and now I am too, as you may have guessed already!!
While waiting for all this to return to normal, I went out and pulled more weeds and prayed. It was a really nice time to pray because as I was pulling weeds that were so close to the delicate green onions and carrots, the thought occurred to me that this is what patience is all about, a slow steady process or the onions and carrots will come up too. Isn't it great that God does wait for us and not just "pull us up" when we get a little "weedy" or closed in by other "weeds"??
Here are some wise gardening "tips" I found:
"The best way to garden is to put on a wide brimmed straw hat and some old clothes. And with a hoe in one hand and a cold drink in the other, tell somebody else where to dig.
Compost is best aged a little like a fine wine. I mean, would you prefer to drink a nice 97, or something that was made last Thursday.
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows.
Spring does not arrive until the ice is out of the compost heap.
Winter does not arrive until the ice is IN the compost. Until then, all bets are off.
Any self respecting rock will break at least one shovel before accepting its new home.
A good compost pile should get hot enough to poach an egg, but not so hot it would cook a lobster.
Gardening requires a lot of water most of it in the form of perspiration. "
