Bless us O Lord, and these Thy gifts, which we are about to receive, from Thy bounty, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Now THIS is what we were hoping for when we began this project. The tomato plants are nearly five feet tall and full of tomatoes. The pepper plants have multiple peppers on each. Zucchini are plentiful and cucumbers are multiplying on a biblical scale! We're even finding stuff we don't remember planting! We will be making our next vegetable delivery the beginning of next week.
We are so pleased by positive response that the garden has received in the parish. Many are calling for next year's garden to be even bigger! And people are being fed! Praise God for our bountiful garden and for St. Fiacre's intercessions!
Blessed be God!
