As a childbirth and parenting educator, I often show my classes a beautiful film about an infant’s journey into this world called The Miracle of Birth. But today, I’m altering the phrase to The Miracle of Growth, something almost as awe-inspiring as bringing a baby into the world – growing your own garden. I do NOT have a green thumb, so all the credit for our little patch of nature goes to my husband. And I get to watch the beautiful process of growth from the sidelines, but I can’t tell you how exciting and fun it is to see those first buds sprout from the ground. I’m not sure who’s more excited, my hubby or myself.
The patch of land was cleared and planted.
Weeks later, we see life! Oh and the Angel Trumphets (top) are on the other side of the house!
We now have this: (monsterous, isn’t it for our little patch of land!)
Check out our snap peas!
Can’t wait for corn!
Would you believe there are 12 different veggies in our garden? What about you… do you get green and dirty as a gardener? Or are you like me and only enjoy watching from where it’s clean and dry? What’s your favorite veggie?
