WORKINGINGARDENheader950700 Thanks for stopping by.. When I had my stroke on Sept 8th of last year I wondered if I would be able to even have a garden this year. Many prayers were answered and by Gods Grace I’ll be able to plant many more gardens.Adversity, does seem to make one appreciate the “simple” things in life just a little more.A “QUALITY TIME FARM” POST FROM LANCASTER,OHIO

Your garden is looking good Joe. Now I know where to come to steal strawberries and tomatoes. LOL! Have a wonderful weekend.

So glad you've recovered and are well enough to be able to enjoy the simple things. Your garden is a lot bigger than mine and I know how much "work" it is. Your garden looks nice and well organized.

Wow! Your garden is so impressive, Joe! You'll be canning like crazy with all those veggies! Wonderful!

Don't forget to email me when you guys decide to head out to AZ! Who's going to water all this while you're away! :-)
