Well, I do believe we are all set. A few days ago, my daughter and I went out and planted the garlic. I was aiming for 100, then went out to the garden with just 80 cloves, but then could only fit 70 in my garlic patch. But that's fine...last year I planted 40, and this year I'm up to 70!
We then grabbed a bale of straw, and covered the garlic and all of the strawberry plants well. So I think we are all set until for the winter! I'm always a bit sad to put the garden to rest, but at the same time the winter break is nice. Now is time to focus on my fudge, and the upcoming holiday season--yay!!
We (well, hubby and son) are also getting ready to butcher our pigs. We are looking forward to a freezer full of pork!
I mentioned in a recent post that we finally got our woodstove installed. This has been such a blessing! Not only do we actually have a warm house in the winter (a first for us), we also have been cooking on top of it, and I am really, really loving that!
All these things have been wonderful, but really, honestly...life has been super stressful. I am constantly looking to the Lord for strength. Life is good....but hard.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:28
