  2. I came to your blog after seeing a comment on another blog. I've been blogging a couple years, and have way too many blogs I try to follow, but whenever I come across one I like, especially if Christian thoughts are expressed, I put it in my sidebar, and do my best to keep up.

    When I was a girl, it was my goal to have a vegetable garden, and when I started gardening, that was my focus. I admire you for all the canning you do, and for making good use of those tiny carrots.

    I've gotten more and more into flowers. I grow lots of salad fixings, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, peppers, and a few other things, but have had lots of problems with rabbits. Once I get my husband to help me put a rabbit fence up, I hope to grow more veggies.

    Happy New Year!

  3. Happy New Year to you and yours as well!

    Thank you for your kind comments. I sincerely appreciate them! I can remember when I was a little kid, my mother and grandmother used to can tomatoes and make homemade grape jelly from the crops they grew on "The Farm", which was 175 acres with cows, chickens, pigs, orchards, and a vineyard. "The Farm" is actually my profile picture. My mother was born in the white house to the left side of the picture. She and her sisters actually DID walk three miles to school, which was a one room schoolhouse! Words cannot begin to contain the feelings of being on The Farm. Imagine. If I like The Farm that much, can you imagine how much more I will like Heaven when I get there?

    Now for the rabbits. I have discussed with my Mom the feasibility of sowing seed for a distraction crop with something like red or white clover, as rabbits are supposed to like that. You could even sow vegetable seed! Whatever the rabbits are eating in your garden, if you have space, broadcast some seed where the grass isn't cut. Then they will have their own garden and leave yours alone. That's just a theory, but it makes sense, and would only require the cost of some seed packets to try out. I don't have rabbit problems, but I am considering sowing white clover as a green mulch throughout my garden. It is supposed to grow 12 inches high, keep the weeds down, and the bees and butterflies like the flowers on it. We'll see if I do that. I'm not 100% on it yet.

    Thanks so much for visiting and sharing your comment!
