"...This is just the kind of evening I love to work in the garden. Things are growing tonight. I hope there'll be gardens in heaven, Susan...gardens we can work in, I mean, and help things to grow."
"But not bugs surely," protested Susan.
"No-o-o, I suppose not. But a completed garden wouldn't really be any fun, Susan. You have to work in a garden yourself or you miss its meaning. I want to weed and dig and transplant and change and plan and prune. And I want the flowers I love in heaven...I'd rather my own pansies than the asphodel, Susan."
~ Anne of Ingleside, by Lucy Maude Montgomery
In the Fall, I wasn't sure whether I'd still be able to work in the garden at this late stage in pregnancy, but I can still manage to sit and weed the garden. I am mainly focused on the chicken coop garden this year and my husband is taking over the vegetable garden.
I spent many enjoyable hours weeding my garden this afternoon in the warm sun with my big hat on and my hands in the dirt. I think it will be a fantastic garden this year, full of edibles and decoratives.
The garden includes:
*a border of lettuces and kale
*brown eyed susans
*sugar snap peas
*scarlet runner beans
Soon the garden will be bursting with flowers and food, like last year. I can hardly wait!
