Little things and high hopes

When we started our seeds this year, there was one tiny little runt that I chose not to plant. I was thinking it was too small. But my better half asked me to plant it, telling me he knew it would grow. So with little faith I planted that little tiny plant.

I was in for a surprise.


Our little plant was growing! It was 1/2″ tall when we planted it and look at it now! Sure, it’s not as big as the plant beside it but it’s growing.

Now, I see this:


There’s a little tiny tomato on the little plant that can. I have high hopes for the little plant. We’ll see…

It’s amazing to watch the garden go from brown, plain dirt to rows of lush green.  Those tiny seeds, so gently planted in the rows, produce such wonderful foods that feed so many.  I’m honored that our produce is gracing the tables of so many families!

All is well in the garden.  With the exception of the final corn field (which will hopefully be planted this coming weekend, depending on the weather), everything is planted and looking great!  Every day there’s something new coming up and something new to see.


My favorite type of lettuce. I can’t wait to eat this!


These cabbage heads are beautiful!


Cayenne pepper plant is looking good!


Beautiful rows of corn, ready to be thinned.


Pea pods!!!


We should have a great crop of potatoes this year.


Little teeny tiny peppers showed up, seemingly overnight.


Sweet potatoes 🙂


I can’t wait to eat a delicious vine-ripened tomato fresh from the garden.
