We are Gardeners...

We now have a garden. Yay. We ran around today and got the last things we needed to get the garden going. I was a little nervous we are starting to late, but after reading the backs of the seed packets I am reassured. We are in the middle or at the end of the recommended time for starting, and the weather has been extra cool lately, so I think we will be just fine.

Like I said, we are planting in containers, recycled rubbermaid bins, actually. I'm hoping they will travel okay, since we are looking to move a little further north in a couple months to be between Abe's work and church.

We planted a bunch of organic seeds, Peas, green beans, onions, peppers, squashes, Romaine and loose leaf lettuce... I'm wondering how they would be different from non-organic... We also got some seed packets that weren't labeled organic, a hot pepper mix with anaheim chiles, cayene, jalapenos, and a couple others, and a bell pepper mix (which I am particularly excited about) with red, yellow, orange, green, and purple peppers! We also got Basil, chives, and another herb that isn't coming to mind right now.  Oh, and tomatoes and a few small plants for a dollar that are already started (the others are a few different kinds of peppers. Man, we're gonna have all the peppers we can eat!)

I'm pretty excited about it. I'll have to get some picture of our progress so far as gardeners.

Remember my cousin Hank in your prayers today. I know the Lord is at work and desires His salvation for him.

"I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase." 1 corinthians 3:6-7
