The color of the rain is green, one could say
after all, green is what follows after, when rains come this way
and when the green comes in abundant vibrancy...
then, the crops do follow, to everyone's sowing fancy
the time has come and passed for cherry jam time...
and the bowl of cherries just for jam...
has gone beyond it's point of chime
which simply means...
I just wasn't able to get to the jam making before the cherries went bad
and bad cherries make bad jam
but, the passionfruit are coming along just fine
the vine climbing the mango tree until the fruits intertwine amongst themselves
and I've got to keep an eye on the passionfruit vine...
to make sure it doesn't mess with my grapevine
to rotate our crops, my husband sowed corn in the kitchen garden...
along with some lettuce
he did try a couple melon seeds and while they came up...
this season they just didn't do so well
we'll try again later
I was pleasantly surprised by my turmeric plant...
when she sprung a lovely set of bracts with pretty yellow flowers
and how wonderfully the Lord detailed this plant that gives it's rhizomes for medicine
it's easy to find the info on it on the web
we are nuts for breadnuts here and so I thought to sow a couple seeds to grow
one seed came up in no time and the little tree is doing fine
we will transplant this as part of our new project homestead soon
and because soursops are so popular these days and bring in a nice little income...
we have sowed quite a few seeds and almost all have come up
we have them in various growing stages and will be transplanting the older ones soon
they too, will be part of the new project homestead crop
it's been a rainy day, today...
and I have not spent much time outdoors
and with the day coming to a close...
it is time to finish up the last of the chores before night falls...
and lighting the lamps again for our evening time of relaxation and rest
He maketh me to rest in green pasture,
and leadeth me by the still waters.
May your day or night find rest in the grace of the Lord.
