DIY Easy Garden Trellis

How to make a simple, cheap trellis for your garden.

Any variety of vegetable plant that sprawls across the ground is a candidate for trellising. Not only does it look tidier, it keeps the fruit up off the ground,  increases air flow and prevents fungus, helps to minimize insect damage and gives you more planting space in your garden. Peas, cucumbers, tomatoes, small melons, gourds and pole beans are best grown on a trellis.

Silver Sunday and Being Thankful

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- finding a salamander in the bathtub - because it wasn't anything worse!
- long days and late sunshine
- dragonflies over the pond
- fragrant, summer-blooming flowers
- the garden, green and growing 
Silver Sunday

O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. 
For He is our God; and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand.
Psalm 95:6,7 KJV
