So.....About the garden

Genesis 3:18-20
By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.
Well, I have to say planting a garden was something I thought I would never do!  It was a very rewarding experience.  We planted about 40, YES 40, tomato plants, 9 cucumber plants, peppers, okra, watermelon, squash, sunflowers, and some herbs.  I was showing the garden to my friend Jennifer.  She discovered the first tiny little squash.  I squealed and got a little teary eyed.  Jenny laughed and said, "I didn't see you get that excited when your kids were born!"  I have to say it was an emotional experience.  I also have to say, "note to self, 40 tomato plants and 9 cucumber plants was a little much".  So, I don't know if I will continue to eat my food by the sweat of brow until I return to the ground, but this was definitely the first of many gardens.
