First Fruits

Bless us O Lord, and these Thy gifts, which we are about to receive, from Thy bounty, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Our garden is still flourishing. We have made our first donation of vegetables to our local human services partner. FIrst up was leaf lettuce and then last week LOTS of radishes and green onions. Our squash and tomato plants continue to grow, our cabbage and broccoli are near harvest, and our peppers are finally beginning to multiply. At the beginning of the project, this being our first year, we'd have been happy if we'd had one tomato to give. We've already surpassed our expectations and now are preparing to have a wonderful harvest very soon. It's amazing how a little holy water can really help things grow!

St. Fiacre, pray for us!
