Thirty-three years ago today I was having a precious baby boy. Today I have been planting garden. Isn’t “new life” a wonderful thing? (I made his favorite dish – salmon patties! Scroll down for the recipe.)

Everything came together on Saturday to begin – the ground was dry enough to plow, we had the time (a biggie) and the “signs” were right! (No I do NOT believe in astrology, but I do believe in Genesis 1:14. God said that the stars were for “days and years and signs and seasons”. The word “signs” means directions and even warnings. The word seasons means appointed times. So yes, I believe in planting by the “signs”. Ha! You didn’t know you were going to get Bible Studies, too, did you? But what did you expect – it’s what I do! 🙂 )

We got 3-4 kinds of tomato plants set out, along with cayenne peppers, jalapenos, red sweet bell peppers and those tasty little “lunchbox” sweet peppers.  We also got spaghetti squash, watermelon, and cantelope plants out (no where near one another, of course for they would “cross” and make neither of them fit to eat – which, by the way, is also the reason for the law in Leviticus 19:19 about not planting 2 kinds of seed in the same field.)

I also sowed 2 kinds of carrots, and 2 kinds of okra, (they’re ok to plant together) and a really loooong row of onion sets. I really wish we could have gotten these out early – but hey – you do what you can do.

This morning I set out cucumbers and planted Silver Queen corn. I’m trying something new here – we’ve always had trouble with raccoons getting in our corn, but I’ve read several places that raccoons don’t like “ground cover” like cucumbers, etc. So this year I set out the cucumbers, interspersed between the corn – so – we’ll see how it works.

I’ll try to plant beans and peas on Thursday. I have 2 kinds of peas to plant – those yummy little sugar snap peas as well as shelling peas. And I have 4 kinds of beans plus blackeye peas to plant. And, I’ll add white half runners in the corn once it gets up about 4-6 inches.

Back to today – after I came in I set about to cook salmon patties. We all love salmon patties, so I have to cook  lot!

Today I used 5 cans of salmon.

Add to the mixture 1 egg per 2 cans of salmon, about 1/2 cup of bread crumbs or cracker meal, 2-3 tablespoons flour, a little of the salmon liquid enough to make the mixture stick together.
