People everywhere have been suffering with some type of weather or climatic something. Loosing homes or lives. Are we experiencing the birthing pangs as describe in the Bible?
"For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines. These things are merely the beginning of birth pangs." Mark 13:8
I can't get over how easy to grow. As mentioned before, gardening in the desert is a learning process. I also have to say that I don't know which is easier, gardening in a dry climate or humid. Both the soils need amending. [The picture at the right isn't the best - it was taken with my phone].
When I think of famines and in this uncertain economy - it's so important to be prepared. That's one of the reasons our son got our garden going and I'm thankful he did. There wouldn't have been time to start it on my own. We have been able to save some money (aside for amending the soil) and will be able to reap benefits over a period of time once it really gets going. The benefits of a garden isn't just saving money you are eating the best. A garden will help through tough times not to mention being able to help others in need. You don't need a lot of space for one and you can do container gardening that does work well. Though keep in mind there is Senate Bill 510 that would make it illegal to grow, share or trade any and all of what you produce. It hasn't been passed yet and sounds like something out of a scary flick but nothing has been surprising me the past few years. My husband tells me all the time "he's glad we're living on God's economy!" I am also.
Anyway, keeping ever busy, pray for rain to quench this dry desert and for it to do a little drying up in other parts~ Vicky
