The Fruits of our Labor - The Garden 2013


WELCOME TO OUR COUNTRY LIVING

Season after season, there’s no other season that anyone always wants to come, that is – spring time. The best season every human and animal life in this world always desiring to come.  It’s the first season of the year, a season  of rebirth for all God’s creation to start life anew, and  a season of hope when one can feel that something impossible can be possibly achieved at the end.  A season of joy when one sees the sunshine like a  glorious light coming from above, this encompasses us with strength and courage to face the daily life’s struggles. As the sun gives light to every part of the world and penetrates beneath the ground, it warms up our own being penetrating also our soul to bring out our sense of appreciation to Mother Nature for its beauty and abundance of natural resources. It is during this season the days are longer than the night. More days to sow the goodness of what life can provide us with the best of our abilities. Because of this, God is really good, His love is eternal. He knows everything and what is best for us. Surely, there are things we don’t know that might come unexpectedly, but the important thing is -- the continuity of the season cycle every year. And this is also what life is to be and will be – unless we contradict it.

For the Great Gardener, this is the best time for him to come home after working hard from his out-of-state job.  The moment he arrived home, he has already a plan what kind of plants and trees to order and where to plant them. This year, he expanded the garden area and has been working hard everyday. He tilled the soil patiently and planted each kind of vegetable seeds in every one or two rows, except the corn. He made 8 rows for the corn seeds this year.  He made 2 small hills of soil for each kind of vegetables like the summer squashwinter squash and pumpkins, cantaloupes,watermelons, and honeydews. He built  vines made of bamboo and also used steel fence,  especially for the pole beans, snow peas, and grapes.  He has newly-arrived trees planted on the other side of our lawn and they are cherry, persimmon, apple, and walnut trees.  But I’m not going to post  them yet, till they have shown a good amount of growth. I'm still showing some plants that had already been planted last year and were shown in our Garden 2012 story. They need to be shown again to see if there are improvements in their size and fruit-bearing capacity.

Spring season has just recently ended and summer time has begun.  Even the intense heat can’t prevent the Great Gardener from doing his passion – planting. Grass easily grows and he mows the lawn to put the grass clippings in the compos tumbler. In that way, he can make organic fertilizer for the garden. What are we looking forward to have this year, in short – the fruits of the Great Gardener’s labor?
