Its garden day at the Mustard Seed House. We will be transplanting tomatoes, and other summer vegetables, weeding and tidying up the porch (I hope). Our garden never looks as tidy as we would like but it produces lots of food – including these wonderful early greens (had our first garden salad this week).
All of this reminded me that I have not mentioned how you can be a part of our garden efforts here;
- If you live in Seattle and would like to participate in our garden days – good times of food, fellowship and gardening – let me know
- I have started over 120 tomato plants, and more basil and squash – obviously more than we can plant. Each year we sell vegetable starts as a small fundraiser for MSA so if you would like to buy your plants from us (sorry only if you can pick them up) here is the order form.
- And it is also time to sign up for the Spirituality of Gardening seminar on May 18th.
- Those of you who do not live in the Seattle area may like to consider developing your own garden community and perhaps, like other groups we are connected to, you would like to use To Garden With God as a resource – lots of garden reflections, liturgies and prayers to start your garden days with. Even recipes to help you with what to do with the produce. It is available in black and white, colour and ebook versions. You can even get it together with Snohomish soap’s wonderful hand cream and garden soap in our garden bundle.
