The Lord Has Blessed Our Harvest





We have truly been blessed this year in our garden. I had a friend come over yesterday just to bless us. She arrived with her horse and buggy. She is neither Amish or Mennonite, but just enjoys the simple life. I had things that needed to be done in my house. She insisted on working in the garden by herself. I told her I would feel bad having her work out in the hot sun, while I was inside. She told me she insisted. So, she was out there quite a while. She weeded around my onions and peppers. Then she picked our first planting of 2 rows of corn and then picked more beans. So, guess what I am doing today? I will start with shucking the corn and getting going on it. Then I will snap beans and get them ready to can. We should have some good eating this winter. All of the work will have been worth it.
