"But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest is come." Mark 4:29It seems that Autumn hurries by so fast, and there is so much to be done. I would like to slow down, and savor the season. However, the garden and it's produce just won't wait for savoring. So, the solution I have found is to savor while I garden, or process our produce. Last night it was canning tomatoes. Tonight it will be applesauce. All good things from our God.
I have been cutting branches of leaves from the yard to make arrangements with, and the colors this year are extra-wonderful! Sometimes I wonder if I should post so much about gardening, but the name of our blog IS Tending Our Gardens after all. I am so thankful to not have to work outside the home at this season of our lives, and get to spend so much time in the garden. Maybe autumn is so busy, because we know the end is nearing?

I have been extra busy this year, because I have the first of two cataract surgeries
today. They have told me that bending and gardening will not work for the next month, so I have been scurrying to complete things, so I can turn to inside projects, like: scrap booking, family history projects, catching up on my reading, crocheting and sewing and cooking. I think the insurance man will be scurrying to get the rest of our outside maintenance done. I am looking forward to seeing clearly again, and plan to be very exited tomorrow to see the first result. I will savor tomorrow...

Let me know if you need any help with anything. Be "religious" with your post op instructions and you will see with great joy again.
Excited for you,
