I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

Waste Not, Want Not Wednesday

Our summer full of gardening, an attempt to be green, hasn't really been a success. 
We tried. Truly we did. 
Our crop so far has included one strawberry
and this beautiful red pepper
barely bigger than a grape or blueberry.

My squash and cucumber bloom over and over again, but so far not a vegetable has emerged. 
The only thing that seems to really show any promise for a usable crop this fall are the potatoes, which are taking over the entire back porch. 
So today's Waste not, want not Wednesday is an encouragement to keep trying. 
 I will.
Even though I seem to be a completely failure~ I won't give up!
Perhaps next year I will live somewhere I can plant in the ground, rather then just containers.
Maybe that will help?
