Asleep in the Snow
Here we are nearly in 2023. When I was a kid I never thought i would ever be living in the 21st century. Here we are nearly in 2023. When I was a kid I certainly never thought I would ever be this old and living in the 21st century. Well I made it and am certainly glad the Lord has put me on this earth for all of those years. Hopefully, I will be able to be here for many more years to come.
The garden behind the church is sleeping now. Putting together the energy to bring forth a bumper crop of veggies for the summer of 2023. While the garden has been sleeping the gardener has been busy. The seeds are all selected for 2023. Some will go into the “ground” as early as January 28th of 2023. That is the first planting for all of you curious people. We will plant petunias and lobelia that day.
These will go in the baskets we hang on the south side of the fence. We will plant two trays of petunias and two of lobelia. The petunias will be a mix of red, white, and blue. The lobelia will be blue and purple. I always look forward to putting the first seeds in the ground. It will be exciting for the congregation to watch the first planting begin to grow. About mid March, maybe earlier, we will transplant them into “larger” quarters and there they will await the move to the outside in the middle of May.
Keep an eye out for those first green shoots in the narthex in February. Be safe and may the Lord watch over you each and every day.
