Today I spent about an hour in my garden plot next door. I've been looking out the window at it for few weeks now, wondering what I should do with it, and when I should start. I see that some people have tidied theirs of winter debris, so that's what I did. I weeded and raked, and now it looks quite tidy.
I've bought the seeds. I know there will be some topsoil coming one of these days. So, the question is: should I plant something now or wait a while. I see that some people have already got lettuce growing. I could do that. We'll see what tomorrow brings.
St. Francis was once complimented on a garden that grew around the place where he was staying. He said that it was the result of prayer. The visitor was surprised and asked if God had just placed the garden there as an answer to the saint's prayers. Francis replied, "Yes." Then he explained, "I pray with my hoe."
So, I'll be praying with my hoe, along with my saint.
I'll try to remember to take pictures and post them here.
