ver since Arator and I took on the project of growing wheat as a cover crop over our garden for winter I’ve been thinking about how sowing good seed in our minds might be helpful.
Wheat builds up the soil and is used oftentimes to feed cattle during those long winter months when not much else is green around them.
The other day I cut our wheat with a push mower and took the bagged cuttings to the young chickens to forage around in. I tried a few bags as a mulch on some of our other “growing things”. Cover crops help keep winter weeds from sprouting up, and when it is tilled in during the spring it helps build the soil.
When we read our Bible, commit as much as we can to memory, learn rich-content music, we are sowing some good “cover crops” for minds?
Life is never dull on the farm.
