Yes, it's time ~ at least in Oklahoma.
We've always done a summer garden
and have grown beets, potatoes, & onions a few times.
But this is our first attempt to do a full spring planting.
This weekend, our family worked together digging in the dirt.
The beds are full of seeds and small plants
just waiting to burst forth in the cool weather.
At least we hope so!
So what's in the garden?
Lettuce ~ 3 varieties
Onions ~ Texas Sweet, of course
Potatoes ~ red, yukon, & kennebec
Swiss Chard ~ red, white, & bright lights
Sugar Snap Peas
Brussel Sprouts (have you tried them roasted?)
and my husband's favorite,
lots and lots of beets.
We also worked on my cottage flower garden. Cleaning all the dead stuff away, we found more shoots of green coming up than we thought.
It's cold out
and it seems early
but it was fun to dig into the dirt
and get ready for spring.
The Lord will guide you always,
he will satisfy your needs
in a sun scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail
