Back to Eden

Our garden is our new adventure. Last year we did raised garden beds and that also went well.  This year the hubby researched "Back to Eden" gardening.

First we planted the seeds and put them in an indoor green house in the kitchen.

Then we put eight truck loads of horse manure, shredded newspaper and hay on top of a layer of newspaper.  The newspaper was also on top of our grass.

We then put in fifteen yards of top soil.  We planted some potatoes and strawberry plants today.

We will also put mulch over top of the plants when they start to sprout a little.

The idea behind "Back to Eden" gardening is that you won't have to water much if at all because the mulch holds in the moisture. The mulch will also keep out a lot of the weeds.  We have mulch from our local tree company. The mulch or wood in small pieces is not even but it will work.

The Book of First John

Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. 

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep his commandments.   

For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments.  And his commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world.  

And this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith.  Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
