Song of Songs 7:14
Sr. Celeste and I have been enjoying the fruits of our garden, sharing them, canning them, making jam and jelly with them and thanking our Bridegroom for these gifts that He has blessed us with this year. We thank those who provided us with plants and seeds for our garden. This year we started our garden in a different location than last year (closer to the monastery) and downsized it quite a bit (much more manageable!). For various reasons we tried an interesting method of planting each plant in a bag of topsoil or a pot, in rows, on top of landscaping fabric mulched with grass clippings. It may sound strange, but it worked wonderfully for us (no weeds!). We have been blessed with a delicious crop, especially the multitudes of tomatoes!

As we enjoy the last harvests from our garden we ask for your prayers as we continue to discern God's will in the formation of our monastery and seek to bear fruit that will endure.
We hope you can make it to our fall work day this Saturday! Please remember to RSVP!
