Brant's Second Love

Is his garden. And is the first thing he checks on when he comes home after a trip. Over the past couple months, he has spent hours over this garden - going to a gardening class, planning, plotting, planting, researching the best types of seeds, etc.

In fact, one of the reasons we chose the place where we live now is because the owners have three gardening box spaces in their backyard that they don't garden with anymore and loves when their tenants use the space to garden.

I tell him that patience is the number one ingredient for growing a graden, but still- there are times when Brant agonizes over his garden because it doesn't grow fast enough or because its not raining enough (apparently rain water is better than water from the faucet?) I seriously even caught him reading in Jacob 5 (what more can I do for my vineyard?) the other day. hahaha.

He's on a trip right now, but can rest assured- that with the FIVE OR SIX INCHES of snow that we've gotten over the past 24 hours (in this lovely spring month of April), that his garden is getting PLENTY of water.

He's missing the snow AND his garden is getting watered.

What a lucky guy.

That is really cool! I never knew that about Brant.
I know you moved apartments but do you live in a different complex than you used to?
