Monday June 6th

Collecting Columbine seeds for next year. As easy as turning the mature seed heads upside down and giving them a good shake. Each one of these small black seeds can become it's own plant which is what truly amazes me. They each contain genetic code that activates under the right conditions, continuing the life cycle over and over again generation after generation. These seeds therefore contain immortality or the very essence of God for when has a scientist ever created something from nothing before and so complex that continues its progeny? They can't and never will. This also makes me question those who say there is not enough food to feed everyone. A single plant yields, 10, 100 or even thousands of seeds. God is generous. Men are greedy. There is no excuse for hunger in the world.

Corn, Sweet Corn

The daily Pea harvest. Will get about the same amount or little more for the next few weeks.

Side garden. I love to sit out here in the evening and ponder the mysteries of the universe.

Mia admiring the Mammoth Sunflowers, which will grow to be about 12 to 15 feet tall under ideal conditions.
