tomato pickin’ with mom

sitting with the best “mayo” picker around 🙂

One mega perk about our rental house is the amazing garden. We have fruit trees (apple, asian pear, fig), berries (blueberries, strawberries, snozzberries (jk!), asparagus, leeks, oregano, LOTS of tomatoes (cherry & heirloom, and lots of collards. Yum! I hope we can continue the planting next year, too.

What a blessing to reap the harvest. In the garden and also in this season of life. Galations 5 talks about “the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.” (5:8-9. NIV) Sometimes the only “reaping” it seems I see is knowing that I’ve been obedient to the Lord through a difficult time. And believe me — God is enough! But, sometimes we reap things in this life after a season of waiting. Looking out at our garden reminds me of that — we are in a season of reaping the Lord’s blessings.
