Just Before it Rained...

I was out in my potager...
turning over the soil in a bed already harvested of beans and cabbages

Foxie girl, thought to help, or hinder


it will sit and wait for a couple of weeks while I renew it with organic compost...
and then, will be replanted with some lettuce greens

in the meanwhile...
our newest chick has been growing
she has a tail and feathered wings...
looking more like mama everyday

we are truly hoping this is a "she" and not a "he"
more eggs, please


I checked on the coffee trees...
and they are blooming
the flowers have a fragrance very close to gardenia...
heavenly


some have already transformed into coffee beans...
we didn't expect it to happen this soon...
but, that's fine
it just means...
our own organic coffee all the more sooner


and then...
there is my strawberry plant my husband surprised me with

I planted it in a unused carry bin


this little creature gave me audience for a while
funny how one can get used to such creatures over time


and then, the rain poured

until the next post...
if the Lord is willing


While the earth remaineth,
seedtime and harvest,
and cold and heat,
and summer and winter,
and day and night shall not cease.
Genesis 8:22

No need to worry about "global warming"

May the Lord grace your day, or night

  1. No there is no need for 'global warming' because He is in control!

    Seeing your potager is so refreshing, especially here in the US where the sun seems to have gone missing for a bit :)

    Thank you for your comment on my last post. It is very inspiring and encouraging.

    Be blessed today,

    Maria

  2. Oh wow, loving your garden!!! I actually just went and cut fresh broccoli today and made a broccoli salad and thought how nice it is to be able to go out and pick what you want from your yard. I love it! Certainly looks like you have a green thumb. Hubby does all of our gardening. So glad you stopped by my place earlier, I am already a follower over here. And the coffee plant, can you really make your own coffee from it? That would be just awesome!! Coffee is so expensive here, we have joked about we may not be able to buy it anymore. Would love to have a coffee plant!

  3. Oh friend, your garden does inspire my eldest. She has decided she will be in charge next summer, and I think I'll let her. Yours is so beautiful!
    If she can pull off something close to that here in our sandy soil, more power to her! (wink)

    This global warming is just too cool for us! Get it?lol
