The Ides of March

The middle of March is the time we plant our spring vegetables
here in our part of the country- and thankfully today was a beautiful
day for it!  AJ and SJ helped me plant the sugar snap peas.

My Grandma taught me to love sugar snap peas, she loved
her garden and would show it to me when we would go to visit.

We also planted some lettuce, kohlrabi, and carrots.
The white stuff in the dirt is ashes from our woodstove.
We heard they are good for the dirt,
especially if you are adding manure to your garden.

Now this evening we are getting our first spring thunderstorms-
perfect for watering our seeds.  This time of year is so nice!

As the rain and the snow
    come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
    without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
    so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
    It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

Isaiah 55:10-11
