Life is a lot like gardening, with seemingly endless work, that seeks to get you down.

Remember to celebrate the good and take time out to smell the roses when they bloom.

34. Life is a lot like gardening, with seemingly endless work, that seeks to get you down. Remember to celebrate the good and take time out to smell the roses when they bloom.It’s good to check in with God during the day, so take a brief pause every hour or so and reflect on this quote/image.

    My grandmother always kept a large vegetable garden. I found out later just how much work these require! But for my grandparents, who lived through the Great Depression of the 1930’s there was no other choice. They couldn’t afford to purchase much food from stores, so they grew their own.

      Beautiful gardens come with a price – mostly of time and effort. Makes you think about a garden as our relationship with Jesus…it needs effort on our part to cultivate it, time to weed out things that shouldn’t be there and so on.

      In the UK we had “Dig For Victory” during WWII to encourage people o grow their own food.

      Your story of your grandmother reminds me of my own. In a bedroom, hidden, was a 3rd pantry where dried food was stored. She used it until well into her 90s; a throwback to survival during WW2.

        Ah yes! I believe we called them “Victory Gardens” here in the U.S. There were about 70 families who lived in my grandparent’s little farming community back then. Now there are exactly two.

            All the little family farms became unprofitable, so the owners sold their land and moved into town. There are still farms there, but only a few people own them now and they are large. Cotton is the cash crop.

            ok. that makes some sense – thanks David

            there used to be so many small farms in the uk, but the same things happened. as supermarkets got more involved, prices were more rigidly set, and many smaller farms went out of business
