6 Unusual Things I'm Growing in the Garden

When I hear the words "vegetable garden," tomatoes spring to my mind; they are the reason I began gardening. You might think of green beans, or lettuce, or peas ... all those standard and well-known garden plants.

This year I've grown some experiments and some unusual plants. Some are well-known staples that I'm growing in unusual ways. Others are plants that I'd never even considered growing before, but my gardening know-how has increased enough that I think I can handle them.

A Slice of My Life

I've been a bit lazy about deadheading the rosebushes this summer. Lo and behold, look at this surprise! A rose hip on a knock-out rose bush. I need to be "lazy" more often!


My hope is to inspire you, and to encourage your homesteading plans and your dreams of a simple, self-reliant, God-dependent life. You can follow me at:

Emergency Ready Challenge: Family Documents (Printable Included!)

Be emergency ready - a preparedness challenge - Organizing your important documents

Last week we began talking about emergency preparedness and how to be ready to evacuate if it's ever necessary. Hopefully we'll never have to leave our homes for a hurricane, wildfire or flood, but you never know. "I'm prepared for the worst, but I'm hoping for the best" is my motto.

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:

- quiet time to think and to pray
- a nap
- talking to my children on the phone
- a family member's recovery from an injury
- friends
Silver Sunday

Who is wise and understanding among you? 
Let them show it by their good life, 
by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
James 3:13 NIV
