My Husband Rocks!

Today is the day I join Katy Lin over at The Great Adventure for My Husband Rocks!

I enjoy this meme because it gives me a chance to brag about the awesome husband that God has provided for me.

As I've shared in the past, DH loves to garden. He has always loved working the soil, planting and tending to those tender plants and enjoying a bountiful harvest from them.

Usually he can accomplish this without too much trouble....until we moved here.

We have lived here almost 4 years, and this ground has given DH more grief than any place we've ever lived!

If you recall, back in January I shared that DH's workload was decreased by 10% (which was restored just last week..PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!).

This decrease in hours enabled DH to get down and dirty (excuse the pun) with his garden. He fertilized and composted and tilled and griped---oopps---and watered and planted--and replanted--ahhhh but success has found it's way to our garden!

We have already harvest lettuce, radishes and green onions in major quantities! We've eaten enough salad that I'm starting to think I'm half rabbit!!

Then yesterday evening I decided I needed to go pick some raspberries (they're in the bowl in the picture below). These raspberries are special because the vines actually came from my grandma's house in Kentucky. (Another post that's worth sharing sometime)

I barely got those berries picked when it started to rain, so I never made it over to the garden to check it.

DH got home from work and got a bucket and headed toward the garden...and look what he brought back!!!

Squash and cucumbers like we haven't seen in years from our garden!!!

He looked like a proud new Papa with his bucket of veggies!! (I'd have taken a pic of DH, but he's not too fond of that....)

He told me that the vines were full of blooms and baby squash and cucumbers. The rest of his garden is looking just as plentiful!

One thing about my DH, he is a determined man that refuses to give up and that makes My Husband Rock!!

Thanks for participating today... I love your story about how you first learned of Jesus, and it was so special because it was your Grandmother.

I realized that I haven't answered my own questions... I will have to do that later...

Awwwww Deb, that is great. The harvest is sweet. I pray God will continue to bless the work of your husband's hands.

I love growing my own veggies. Last night I picked cucumbers and squash from our garden. When the tomatoes start to ripen I am going to have my hands full. They are loaded.
