Little Buckaroo wanted to get in on the action and asked if he could have a garden this year. I am all for child labor, no not in China, but at my house our boys already help clean bathrooms, make their beds, clean their own rooms and help with laundry. They are only 2 and 5. But, if we want to grow them into responsible young men we can not wait until they are 12 and decide that we are going to make the be responsible. And, squash, zucchini, tomatoes last for a season, growing Godly men is an every day responsibility that will last a lifetime. His grace has truly been upon us.
I gave Little Buckaroo a couple of packets of seed that had been in the refrigerator for a few years, and by golly, his zucchini and cantaloupe look better than anything (aside of my squash) in the garden. He is so excited to go out and water his garden and pick what is ready.
Going to weed the garden,
