We completed our potato harvest last week. We harvested red,white and gold potatoes. It was a good harvest but not as plentiful as last year due to our drought. Lots of sisters came to help in the garden.

AN ABUNDANT HARVEST We are now in the process of harvesting our garden and the harvest is abundant. We have been eating tomatoes, zucchini, summer squash, green beans, garlic onions, sweet potatoes, kale, lettuce, spinach, watermelon, cantaloupe and more. We have put up gallon of tomato products. We praise the Lord for such an abundance. Tomorrow we harvest our potato crop.

We also had a broken pipe in our septic tank and unbelievably the workmen had the whole thing repaired and the road fixed in one day.

The birds have returned including our favorites, the Baltimore oriole!
We are also living with the realities of the covid-19 virus. Iowa has been under a stay home order since March. We don't feel it too much as we don't go out much but it has been challenging getting food and making doctors' appointments.
We are keeping health care workers, people who are sick, and those who are isolated or at home with young children very much in prayer these days.
