Community House Garden

Our garden contains both vegetables and flowers. We have just finished our first crop of sugar snap peas–yum! In the photo you can see the dying pea vines on the fence. Gardens are lots of work, as you know if you have one.  God has blessed our garden with some plants we don’t have to plant anymore; they just plant themselves. One example is the Gloriosa daisies (yellow and red) you can see in the foreground. We haven’t planted any in years and always have plenty. In the spring we have oriental poppies everywhere that started with a single plant many years ago. This spring we also have dill growing everywhere; the flowers are cute and and the spice is nice.

About Open Eyes

I moved to the Community of Jesus in 1977 with my wife and three middle-school children. Now I am 72 and my children are middle aged. I am grateful for my two grandchildren living next door. My PhD in physics led to a career in aviation safety that continues to the present, although at a reduced level of involvement. Surrounded by computers in my home office, I am also part of the team that supports the Community's computer network. I enjoy gardening, both in my yard and in the Community's vineyard. I love to see God's hand in everything around me. I teach high school chemistry for home school and am continually astounded at what God has created from less than 100 elements--the chemist's view (and only three elementary particles--the physicist's view). Although I am slowing down physically, I find God continually providing me with new challenges.

One thought on “Community House Garden

  1. I used to spend long hours with my grandmother outdoors. She had a beautiful flower garden along with her very large vegetable garden. Though she was a farmer’s wife and had to spend a lot of time helping out with the family business, she made time to tend to both of her gardens. Her vegetable garden was not only a labor of love; it was something that helped them through the winter. The more they could can, the more money they saved when milk production was low and the money was not as good as it should have been.^^
