Deciding on my Thankful Thursday posts is no easy task. It is not that I cannot think of anything to be thankful for, on the contrary, I have a hard time narrowing it down. Eight healthy kids? Yep, thankful! An ever-forgiving Saviour in Jesus? Yep, thankful! Being married to my dream man? Yep, thankful! Lost the baby weight and wearing my clothes? Yep, thankful!
This week, my thankfulness is focusing on our vegetable gardens.
We really concentrated our efforts on two raised beds and the square foot gardening method.
I am loving just how much we are able to grow in a compact space! It has made weeding a lot easier.
We are also able to concentrate the soil amendments and fertilizers to the soil that the plants are growing in rather than the walkways.
We are also able to water the beds and not the walkways. See? Resources going to our fruits and veggies and not the spaces for walking!
I am truly thankful that God has blessed our gardens so much. We will be able to can or freeze lots of tomatoes, green beans, corn, okra, squash, cucumbers, and more.
I am thankful for the fresh fruits and veggies. I am thankful for the food we are steadily putting in our freezer or our pantry. I am thankful for the great times we have had working our garden together. I am thankful for the healthy family that comes from eating fresh, non-GMO foods!
What are you thankful for this week?
