Two weeks away, and the changes that took place here are almost hard to believe. For example, check out the explosion in our garden:
Tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, beans, peas, zinnias, and sunflowers about 10 feet tall! Sadly, the beans and peas were overgrown and diseased, but the chickens LOVED them. We ate the first of the tomatoes, as well as grilled zucchini. Four bell peppers made it to the refrigerator, while three more got eaten by a rat last night. (Ugh!) I’ve been home just a couple days now, but spent lots of time in the garden and the pool. Welcome, summer!
It will be hard to know where to begin with our mission trip to Thailand. Unfortunately, I lost my camera in the airport on the way out so I have zero pictures. However, several friends took pictures so I am hoping to get a fair amount from them somehow. For now, all I can say is that it was a wonderful trip with lots of stories to share and lots of memories to treasure in my heart. I loved every minute, but now I am so happy to be home!
Side note: All the spending money I took to Thailand for food, offerings, and souvenirs came from our garden prize money. Isn’t that cool?
