Proverbs 31 Woman

I have been thinking a lot lately about how to be a better wife.  Not just a good wife, but a Godly, wise, respected woman that my husband is proud of. 

One of the ways that I feel God is leading me is to start my own garden.  Consider verse 16 of Proverbs 31- "She considers a field and buys it; From her earnings she plants a vineyard."  This shows us that she is enterprising and prudent with money (something I'm not).  By planting my own vegetable garden, I ensure that Lee and I are eating healthy.  I save us money, which means we have more money to give back to God.  I learn how to work hard over the long term as I labor over my vegetables.  And I get to get my hands dirty and have fun!

Here are my seeds, soil, and manure.

Lee and I picked out the cucumbers together, I chose the okra, and he wanted the squash.

The garden box my wonderful husband built for me.  Look at my tomato plant!!

The first bunch of seeds.

Did you plant anything this year?  Do you have any suggestions for this novice?

  1. Call me when you make some fried okra! Also, if you'd like my nitrogen-rich coffee grounds I will happily save them for you and your garden.
