April 2, 2020 – The Limerick

Today we will delve into a language lesson on poetry, especially the Limerick.

But first let’s give you some updates around the farm.

The potatoes are growing so well! I normally space them out more but last year about 50% of the seed potatoes sprouted. This spring I planted them close expecting the same. However, they all sprouted!

I may not thin them because I prefer small red potatoes to cook.

Our okra did not do well. Only two plants sprouted. It may be that the weather got cool again. Okra is of African origin, so it likes the heat.

We will replant the okra.

The lima beans are doing well. Fresh garden beans are one of our favorite meals.

The front pond is empty, so the cows go over in that pasture to graze, then they call for us to come let them back into the other pasture.

Here are the books I use today in our poetry/language lesson.

Finally, here is the video I recorded today. I finally got a cat to hang out with me while I videoed. I’ve been trying for some time.

Hope you are doing well!

Here is the scripture I’ve been meditating on today from Matthew 5:43-48

““You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’

But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven.

He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

If you love those who love you, what reward will you get?

Are not even the tax collectors doing that?

And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others?

Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:43-48‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Stay safe and be kind!
