The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me. ~ Psalm 16:6 nasb

April in My Vegetable Garden and More

April 18.

After I watched the guys get out all the yard stuff, I wandered into the back yard to check out my veggie garden.  Here's the overview:


The rhubarb is growing nicely!  I'm always amazed that within a week or so it grows from just a pearly red nub pushing up out of the ground to this!



I also have a number of purple onions coming up from last year!  This was a treat, since I decided I wouldn't plant onions this year.


Here are the three beds in a row.  You can see the strawberry plants coming up through the remaining straw.  Yay for delicious red fruit!


Behind my veggie garden, way in the back point of our pie-shaped yard, waited my special place.  It's really just a bench, a kidney-shaped pile of dirt, and a few flowers that manage to grow up without any assistance from me.



Sitting on the bench, I can look out on my veggie garden beds.



Here's the view from the back-most corner of our back yard.



You probably know by now I stand on the deck of our pool to take pictures of my veggie garden, and my special place, below.  Now you can see what I'm talking about--pile of dirt and all!



Every year I say it, but someday it'll be done, and it'll be my outdoor sanctuary, my thinking spot, my garden oasis just steps from our door!


Back to life,
Christine
