Garlic harvest this year has been great.   Really great when you know I've spent almost no time tending the garden in two years.   Instead I've been gardening in the souls of men with teaching healing.   Planting seeds of Hope, Joy, Faith have taken priority over the physical garden, but we need a balance of both in order to stay fully grounded.   Liver cleansing is my next internal adventure and the interesting timeing as one of the liver cleanse protocols encouraging a potassium broth made with 50 cloves and eating at least 5 raw garlic cloves daily coinciding with my garlic doing so well and being ready right now is just, well, that would be this scripture in action:  Proverbs 3:6
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Our Cherry trees have done well this year, though they're really too small to easily pit.  I've been trying to figure out what to do with them and don't want to make jelly as we don't need excess sugar.   I came up with juicing them and freezing them in ice cube trays for smoothies!

This ice cube tray is from my first experiment with this idea:   I attempted juicing the cherries with their pits in my green star :(   locked it up.  Had to use my ice cream scoop to pray the juicer parts apart, and was worried I'd broken it, but, happy day, the juicer's fine, but it wasn't gonna work to do all raw juice.   So, I've pulled out the steamer juicer to cook them down, then will freeze in cubes.
This vine is the only cutting that survived from our move 4 years ago and this is the first year it's bearing fruit.   There are roses, garlic, and other herbs and apples planted nearby.

Micah 4: 4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it.
