The Joy of Summer’s End

Although summer offers a season of fun, here in the deep south, it seems to last forever!  One of the signs of summer’s end around here is when we clean up the property.
Look how  in summer, the grass and weeds really grow!

My oldest son began the big clean up by mowing our field:

Then once the grass was mowed and the ground harrowed up, we made a spot for a fall garden:

This weekend we planted broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, mustard greens and a few herbs.  Getting the seed into the ground and eagerly ready to tend to the garden brought me much joy this week!


Good, True & Beautiful
