Sunday afternoon planting April 25, 2006

On Sunday morning, we bid our Alabama kinsfolk fare-thee-well with a huge appreciation for the work they did while visiting. We’re looking forward to them coming back soon!

Sundays are a day of rest and relaxation for us. We go to church and spend the rest of the day doing things we enjoy as a family. For us, that means no WebbTech work and no housecleaning or daily chores. But gardening and working in the pasture are fair game since we all really enjoy being outside and appreciating the beauty of God’s creation.

So Sunday afternoon we got back in the garden and planted 4 more rows of sweet corn – about 440 linear feet worth of corn! We also put in 70+ tomato plants. The kids enjoyed ferrying the peat moss to the tomatoes plants – how often as a kid are you encouraged to dig holes and play in the dirt?


Rachel gardens with style, doesn’t she?

Anyway, I know it sounds like we’re trying to feed an army, but we’re just hoping to can and freeze quite a bit this year so we can enjoy the fruits of our labor year round and have some to share with family and friends.
