"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."
~Psalm 127:1

Another garden update

I haven't written about the garden in a while.  Since the last time that I wrote, the weeds grew up and I was not able to stay ahead of them.  But thanks to a few very kind volunteers, my garden is fairly weed-free and flourishing.  I have picked 7 zucchinis, 2 cucumbers, 1 pepper, and I should go out and pick some yellow beans and sugar snap peas today. 

I have a lot of tomatoes growing on the stalks and I think I will be overwhelmed with them after a few days!  There are a few watermelons and cantaloupes growing, they are so cute and small right now! 

The zucchini will continue to provide in abundance, I'm sure.  No matter what condition my garden is in, I can always grow zucchini.  Josiah said that zucchini is a self-esteem builder, because it grows so easily.

"You take care of the earth and water it,
making it rich and fertile.
The river of God has plenty of water;
it provides a bountiful harvest of grain,
for you have ordered it so.
You drench the plowed ground with rain,
melting the clods and leveling the ridges.
You soften the earth with showers
and bless its abundant crops.
You crown the year with a bountiful harvest;
even the hard pathways overflow with abundance.
The grasslands of the wilderness become a lush pasture,
and the hillsides blossom with joy.
The meadows are clothed with flocks of sheep,
and the valleys are carpeted with grain.
They all shout and sing for joy!"
~Psalm 65:9-13
