We finished our front yard path to the door, which gives us about 3 more feet of garden (3x3) and I think I'm going to put a couple of lavender plants in there, and some heather near the walkway (that's what's on the other side of the walkway. It's been a challenge to decide what to plant!

Just planted potatoes yesterday and weeded all three of our garden bins. My rhubarb is coming up. My swiss chard is doing so so. My onions are getting there and my peas are starting to have pods! I love my little spot in Oregon!

When you are swimming in a sea of despair and all you are trying to do is keep your head above water, the last thing you need is for someone to tell you that your swimming suit is ugly.

When God seems far away, call on Psalm 139


"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own" 1 Cor. 6:19



Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. Phil 3:19


Prov 23:2
put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.

We have a bunch of scrub friut trees, plums, cherries, pears, apples, that the dear, birds and sheep eat. I try to grow rhodys, roses, peonys, wigelia, lilies and annuals. I say "try" because when the sheep get out, I usually am starting over again. So far I have planted onion sets, but plan to plant peas, potatoes, beans and tomatoes and some chilis.

I have flowers and bulbs everywhere and a veggie garden. I grow onions, garlic, green beans, squash, carrots among others. I also have blueberries but the birds usually get most of them. i really don't mind though. I can always buy more.

I have a tiny house and a tiny yard that I am currently rehabilitating. I inherited some bulbs (I have daffys and tulips and hyacinths blooming), some roses which are getting better, and I planted a new rose this spring, I'm planting a new everblooming lilac and some clematis. I hope to have a pot with rainbow chard, dill and parsley. And I hope my sweet doggy can stay out of all of this!

As soon as we have a house, my husband and I want to grow so many different fruits and vegetables. I can't wait. He's trying to grow some herbs in our balcony, but we can't grow too much since the neighborhood kids can get into it.

My "garden" consists of a few whiskey barrels which usually have flowers in them (might put a tomato in the middle this year) I have planter boxes on the deck and try to grow some herbs there. I don't have space for a real garden, but have several farms that sell local produce during summer. I go there a lot in the summer. Favorite veggie is green or red sweet bell peppers! Use them in place of bread to stuff with tuna, egg salad, chicken - you name it!

I have a Balcony/Patio. We have a small well it's about 5'7" now Christmas tree we potted in a larger pot and it's about 3 years old now but this apst snow storm around Christmas knocked it out. We have no where where we could have taken it So I'm planting some vegetables for the summer in trays and tulips in Pots and I'm heading end of this week to the Wooden Shoe tulip Festival near Woodburn. Maybe buy some bulbs there.

we live in the forest so growing vegetables is out of the question. We have tried, but not enough sun. We have old growth douglas fir, hemlock and Western Cedar and Rhody's. We can grow some flowers but we have to plant them. But the deer eat them. mike

Do you have a yard where you can have a garden? If so what foods or flowers and trees do you have?

We have strawberrie, raspberries, Iris's, Peony's, Columbine, Snow Ball, Lilacs, Roses and an assortment of flowers. We will plant tomatoes, onions and maybe peppers and Kolrabi for a start.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!
