If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

Hi Angie welcome to the team!
I find my root crops develop best in loose soil, so be sure you use plenty of organic matter in your raised bed. That organic matter will keep those worms well fed too.

Hi Angie, I'm Donna... Welcome! I'm on the northern California coast. Not much sand, but ton of hard clay. I used to live on the beach and the sand there was fantastic for growing everything... the water was free too, which helped a lot. I grow root veggies in raised beds here without much difficulty, it's the above ground veggies I have a hard time with! Hope you enjoy this team and get answers to some of your gardening questions at the same time. emoticon

Hi, everyone! My name is Angie Hindle. I have been with Sparkpeople on and off for about 4 yrs. I live in North Florida. I need to use raised beds as my entire yard is sand...I am starting to build new beds in the next few weeks. One thing I like to do is buy bait worms sold for fishing and set them free in my raised beds. Happy worms!!!
I have trouble growing root veges, like carrots, here. Anyone else have the same issue?
