Garden - Spring 2015 - Update I

In our first garden post of the year, we showed the weeding, planting and beginnings of 2015's Spring garden. Well, it's early Summer now, and here is how things are progressing, by God's graces...

First, here are some green beans and zucchini from about a month ago:

This is Garden II, with the green beans on the right, and butternut squash and zucchini on the left:

Over in Garden I, that zucchini planted last year, which sprouted this year, has done just fine!

We are grateful to the Lord for His providence in the food and the rains to keep things growing!

So happy that your garden is doing well this year. It seems like the rains must have helped those dormant seeds to sprout. May the Lord continue to Bless both of you.
