  • No matter what you celebrate during the month of December it likely involves some sort of gift giving.  Manufacturers have made certain that our options are unlimited when it comes to giving to the gardener, but some gifts are more useful than others! Don’t waste your money on the cute but useless, or the useful but cheap. Consider, instead, some of these items that are favorites among my serious gardening friends.
    A few of my favorite things

    • ‘Joy to the world, the Lord has come . . .’ Joy, found in a relationship with Christ is like no other joy that can be found.    Though many today are not ‘interested’ and consequently have little or no joy in life, God really did intent that joy for the entire world.

    Christ
