FINGERPRINT FRIDAY

My grandma always had a beautiful garden when I was growing up. I share her love of it in many ways. I really don't know what I would do if I couldn't get my hands in the dirt. I go through many pairs of garden gloves during the growing season...yikes.

Grandma had a saying and to this day I live by it.

"Who plants a seed beneath the sod, and waits to see believes in God"


Onions and radishes


Strawberry bed


Asparagus (don't look at the weeds..I didn't plant those) :)


It's early here in Western Pa but within the next few weeks I'll be filling the garden up with all kinds of goodies....I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Now get out there and get your hands dirty! It really is one of the best therapy sessions ever! haha

What a lovely garden with God's fingerprint all over it...I don't do well with gardens (nickname:Black Thumb), but husband does..I do all the canning/freezing, so I am redeemed..

oooh, I covet your garden! :) it's lovely. I do a little container gardening b/c I don't have a yard! So excited for you that the asparagus is already popping up.
