We took advantage of the break in the weather to get our garden ready for planting. I cannot describe how purely in heaven I felt today behind the tiller, barefoot, working up the earth in preperation for the seeds and plants for our garden. I once read somewhere that to plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow, and that is so true! This garden is more than simply a hobby to us, to me. This garden is how we feed ourselves, our kids through the winter months, as well as all summer. I have to put the work and effort into it, to make it produce. Every drop of sweat and every sunburn, aching muscle is earned with a smile as I see what all that effort produces.
