The lettuce, onions and a few herbs: chives, parsley, and catnip have been transplanted into the greenhouse bed. The kale, broccoli, cauliflower, Swiss chard, and spinach need a bit more growth on them, then they will be transplanted outside.
I'm behind on harvesting: parsley, celery, and rhubarb. Although it is a very simple task to harvest and prepare them for storage, time continues challenge me. I have found frustration more recently, than I ever used to, due to so much more to do.
For moment, I question this way of life. I feel the heaviness of doubt weigh my thoughts. I know I need to shake the uncertainty. I remind myself this journey is not by our design. It has been directed, step by step. I tell myself we are on the down hill side of this part of the journey. We now in a waiting time period. Our faith is being tested. Skills are being used.
In between working off farm, the seeding, planting, weeding, preparing meals, caring for the livestock, and studying, we have been finishing up some outside projects, in preparation to putting our home on the market. We still have some outdoor painting to do, but that will be taking place in the dryer months ahead.
We finished splitting and stacking the remaining firewood we harvested last fall and winter. We have found over the last five years, that we are consistently using five cords of wood for the seven months, to heat our home.
We have also agreed to find another source for our wood supply this year, as the previous place we were getting it from, became too stressful, and uncomfortable for us. It was not stressful or uncomfortable in regards to the work load required, but in dealing with people. It was not a safe environment to be in. We believe if it is the Lord's will for us to heat with wood, he will provide another source for us.
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 NIV
Enjoy the day!
