Amazingly, we still have a good supply of produce. We now grocery shop in the yard. We made a great connection to get manure regularly, for which I could jump up and click my heels for joy. And we have fantastic neighbors who let us borrow their truck to pick it up.
We've been thoroughly enjoying seeing friends and family when we connect to pass off CSA baskets. It's been so fun to have visitors at the garden. This past weekend, we were very blessed to have 6 extra pairs of hands to fellowship, eat, hoe, weed, plant, water, and unload manure with. It was such a boost. With their help, we slipped in a 2nd planting of green beans. We hope & pray for a bountiful harvest this time.

Another thing to be thankful for: we've been blessed with a well-cared-for tiller. This past spring was hectic as we dealt with a temperamental old machine that failed us when we needed it most. We are so thankful to have our own tiller now!
There seems to be a Seed Angel in our midst. At some point this past weekend, an unseen visitor dropped off a huge quantity of seeds. To whoever did that: Thank you so very much. They will be put to good use, growing food to nourish people.
