My internal clock encourages me to start preparing the soil for my spring garden. So today, I will scoop up some old cow manure and start amending the ground to have a beautiful, well-producing garden. I’ve pre-started my seeds to be ready to plant near the beginning of March. We should be past frost by then. I also bought some asparagus roots to plant and try to grow. After I got them, I looked them up to see how well they grew in Florida. According to the extension office website, they don’t produce very well, the plants do fine, but we don’t get cold enough here. The foliage is very pretty and does just fine, so I will plant them in my blueberry garden to give it some pizazz.
Gardening is good for my soul and very satisfying. It’s what God meant for me to do physically and spiritually. It’s funny that they go hand in hand. Whether you like art, music, fishing, or whatever suits your fancy, see if it also translates to an activity you can use for the glory of God. I’m sure he gave you that desire for a reason.
Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. 1 Corinthians 12:4-6
