I weeded for DAYS and DAYS! And I loved it. I now have a beautiful little backyard garden with cucumber, beans, tomatoes, eggplant, basil, Brussels sprouts, peppers, dill, parsley, and chives.
I’ve learned to stay rooted to the place God puts you. In my case, it’s Pennsylvania. Here, people do indeed live off the land. They garden and hunt. They pickle and preserve. They store and freeze. I’m slowly learning the ways of the Gardener.
It’s been joyful. And now, I dwell more and more in hope as I water the garden and wait for the harvest.
